    New boat and I need to install a transducer on aluminum hull, I was told about 5200 and then read it was for fiberglass and wood hulls. Any one with insight that can help would be much appreciated.

    Need a little more information
    What type of thru hull is it? Model material is it adjustable, ie for either height or adjustment from normal?

    Is this a thru hull and you are going to use 5200 to seal the opening?

    sikaflex products might be of help, many of them bond to aluminum
