Hi Jimmy
I cannot answer your question directly as far as your boat is concerned, but I have a 925 sailer and my transducer is mounted internally, with no problems. It is mounted on the centreline just ahead of the keel. There is a small plinth moulded into the hull for the transducer to sit on, so it must be at least one inch thick, if not thicker, at that point. As it is at the V of the hull, it could in fact be nearer two inches thick.
My sounder is a Nasa Clipper and it has given no problems after eleven seasons use.
Cheers
Tom
