Depth Gauge transducer...
Trying to find out what glue/epoxy is used to attach the depth gauge transducer to the hull...Mine came unglued, and is boucing around. Dealer tells me its some "special" glue. I dont believe that its so "special"..
What should I use??

i used 5200 marine epoxy on mine with no problems.
remember you have to fill it with mineral oil before putting the transducer back in. there cant be any air between the hull and the trans.

Are you speaking about putting a ring of epoxy and filling the ring with mineral oil then putting the trans on the hull?
Can you not put epoxy accross the whole bottom of the trans, or will that screw up the area that reads through the hull?

The post that the link points to does not mention mineral oil. Thay is what he is questioning.

I don't understand where the mineral oil comes in ?? I have mounted many thru hull depth finders in boat hulls and any good epoxy works fine if there are no air bubbles in it and it is applied to a dry, clean, oil free hull surface.. I never used silicone because it is supposed to block the transducer "waves" and screw up readings.

heres the instructions for airmar, thats the company that makes the p79 depth transducer that seadoo uses for there factory depth display.
first you epoxy the base to a part of the hull that is single layer. (meanning theres NOT two decks with space between)
the mineral oil goes inside the base before you pop the transducer in. It eliminates the air space between the trans and the hull.
