What thru-hull transducer would be good for furuno fcv585 on a 32 Mitchell cove. It already has a 1 inch hole were the sitex transducer is. I will be only fishing in about 100 ft of water 90% of the time mostly dragging a small net. I think I would like to see more wider of beam looking for hangs. Anybody have any insight or should I call aimar and tell them what I am doing. Thanks for help.

For what its worth i was at the Atlantic City boat show asking the hot shoes of electronics the same question for the same unit 585 . In shallow water ( up to 700 ft .) the 600 w will provide more coverage in sonar ability . The deeper the water is where the 1 kw excells as the deeper the water the wider the coverage for the 1 kw . So i asked about sensitivity for the two transducers and got two different answeres . One guy told me that the 1 kw was about 40 percent more sensitive than the 600 w . Two other salesmen told me that was hog wash . Three different companies two different ans. There are different types of 600 w transducers and both told me if you buy the top shelf transducer that sensitivity would not be an issue ( fairing style not puck ) but my dumb ass never thought to get model # because i knew i wouldnt be buying anything till Uncle Sam gives me back my fucking money he stole from me last year .

Also for the 1 inch previous hole just hot glue a wooden block inside or outside so you have something to start the pilot hole for the larger holesaw size, then pop off wood block easy enough.
Good idea always a pain in the ass trying to get a holesaw started with a 3/8 bit in a 1" hole.
