    Hello, i need a little help here. Is anybody can advise on how to install echo sounder & speed log on v-shape hull. I mean, how to construct its shape to avoid bubble occurred. Maybe a little sketch will help me.

    Do you have a link to the transducer you will be mounting?

    Rule #1 is to place the transducer to avoid disturbed water from strakes, steps, and other features as much as possible. If accessible positions are limited, you can temporarily test locations with the "bag of water" technique inside the hull.
