ahskip1,

There is not a shoot-thru hull Side Imaging transducer.  Are you looking for a 2d transducer to get better readings at high-speed?

Yeah. I need a 2D thru hull. Also, i'm getting vertical lines with the 2D sonar. You know what could cause that?

Get the XP-9-20 transducer and the AS-SIDB-Y connector and you are set. I used both with my 898c SI and it works great. Mount the XP thru-hull in bilge area, the supplied SI transducer on transom and connect the two with the "Y" connector. Now your placement of the SI transducer is less critical because the unit will automatically read the thru-hull when using 2D and the SI when using SI. I was able to mount my transom transducer much higher on transom so it won't get knocked up or broke every time I drag it over stumps(daily).

ahskip1,
If those vertical lines are only happening when the boat is moving at a fast speed than it is probably due to air getting under the transducer.  An inside-the-hull transducer and transducer splitter cable like neilbober posted will most likely help this.  Just make sure that you test the mounting location of the XP-9-20 before you start mixing the epoxy, so that you know it will work in that location.

Thanks. Got the XP-9-20 and Y cable. Going to test on the lake tomorrow before epoxying.
