After trying different methods of mounting a transducer external and internal to my Outback, I have settled on using "duct seal" putty. It's very secure, not permanent, takes a couple of minutes to install, and doesn't need any additional additives. I found this idea from the following thread: http://www.hobiecat.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=34526

I bought mine at Home Depot...find it in the electrical connectors area.

Once upon a time, 50 years ago when I was in the Navy on an old DER....a Radar Pickett DE ship stationed in Pearl Harbor, we used a John Manville product called  "DUXseal" to insulate large electrical connections before adding electrical insulating  tape and to plug up stuffing tubes containing cables that ran through bulkheads....Duxseal made the compartment reasonably water tight.
This stuff has been around for years as both telephone and electrical companies loved it too.

Is that the official name for 'monkey shit'?

We used a lot while pulling cables in the yards.

Come to think of it, I am sure the original Monkey Shit had asbestos in it......after all, all of the steam/hot water pipes were covered with asbestos too.
That is one reason why so many US Navy sailors, Merchant Marine and yard workers contracted asbestosis.
BAD SHIT!

I doubt it was the asbestos trapped in the goo of monkey shit.  It was more likely the tons of the wool and fabric used to insulate virtually everything on ships until the 1960s.
