Partially removed the Airmar P66 to make room for some planning and dynamic install stuff. Cut a piece of 3/4-inch KING StarBoard so I could get a feel for how the TM 260 would look on my transom. I've got the KING StarBoard temporarily attached to my SternMate base plate. Here are some pictures of how the final product will look. Good size comparison of the TM 260 and P66. The TM 260 is a large transducer.

I moved away from using my Sternmate as home to my TM260--just too much torque from the transducer as it moves thru the water on plane. The TM260 weighs in at 7-lbs; in the scheme of things it creates some interesting install dynamics. I cut a piece of polyethylene marine board 6" x 6.5" x 3/4", heated it to prepare the surface for expoy bonding, then installed it on my transom using Flex Set Epoxy and seven 3-inch screws. About 75-percent complete.

Here are some pictures.

In what water depth will you be using that TM260 transducer?
