I plan on installing a combination GPSmap/Sounder unit in my 1998 18ft. Ventura.
My question is:
Will an in-hull Puck transducer work if installed on the flat surface just ahead of the bildge pump?
This question is really for 18ft. Ventura owners that have successfully installed an in-hull. I would not do a thru-hull...and I know a transom mount is an option...but for several personal reasons I'd like to keep it inside if possible...will it work??

I had a 1998 18' Ventura and suggest a transom mount.

I've Lowrance GPS and sounder units for years. Check with Lowrance customer service at
Several years ago they told me thru-hull transducers would not work in any Whaler hull because of the foam sandwich construction.
