One of the many projects I have planned for our time in the yard this year is to finally install a proper depth transducer. I have had a hit-or-miss operational time with various shoot-thru-the-hull types and really want to get a proper measuring device. I mean really, is there much more of an important piece of gear in the AICW?
Anyway, I plan to have the yard, for insurance, liability, and my own self doubt reasons, install it. However, while I have not yet inquired about the exact method of install (moreover, I haven't really even picked the yard yet), I have a suspicion that they will quickly reach for the 3M 5200.
Should I allow 5200 be used? What other options should I suggest or even insist upon? Sikaflex?
