My Conquest has two 'transducer mounting areas' in the stern. Are these intended for through-hull or in-hull transducers? Both, maybe?

You can do either. There is no foam between the inner and outer skins in those spots, so shoot through will work.

I'm not so sure that a shoot through will work. I have installed an Airmar P79 Shoot through and the initial results are terrible. If I hold the transducer over the side it works fine, otherwise when installed in the boat w/mineral oil bath it only shows 1' of depth. I will be experimenting more in the next week and will let you know.

Airmar shoot thru will NOT work over the 'putty box' area, I tried it three weeks ago and went with a transom mount. Transom mount was an easy install, drilled under the water line [well filled with 5200] to minimize cable length exposure on transom and unit holds bottom on the standard depthsounder at WOT of 45 mph.

Do you have a surface clutter control on your fishfinder? If so, can you set if for around 5 feet and see if it will work then? the surface clutter filters out any returns close to the transducer which might be overwhelming the return from the bottom. BillS
