I have a thru hull Si that I got it by mistake for my 1198 and because the box was opened they won't take it back, never even removed the plastic stick paper on the bottom of the ducer... Online dealer factoryoutletstore.com my mistake, never again

Bobby,
the 1198/998 Transducer will not be a good choice for a 981/987, because they just have the 445 kHz in common (and that with different angles).
The 987 needs the "old" SI transducer, the 898, 997, 998, 1197 and 1198 models need the HDSI transducers (HD stands for high definition, since it has the 800 kHz instead of the 262 kHz frequency).

Black Haze,
try poorfish.com. You need this one:

I got my stuff from there and he sends it out really fast (10 days to Germany!).

Thanks, I didn't know that, actually I'm looking to sell this one before I buy a different thru hull.  I have two of the standard sihd's I bought this one because the HB site lists this as the only thru hull that matches up by on the forums I hear that may not be true.  I just wanted something to shoot the bottom while underway, then when I slow I'll switch to the transom mount SI.  My plan was to raise it just a bit to get it out the the water while on plane so I dont get any spray... thanks again for the correction

Anytime Bobby!

Most people are not aware about the difference between the good old 981/987 and the new models since the 987/981 are out of production for some years now.

I try to keep the oldies "updated" here on the forum, because I'm one of the few who still have one  ;D
