Can anyone tell me a name or certine type of epoxy to use for relocating my transducer for my depth finder. I went to fishermans to see what they had and there 4 or 5 different kinds. I just want to make sure that I use the right one so I don't have to pull it back up and redo it.

3m 5200 epoxy will stick and should be permanent

I used a 5 minute epoxy based on Norcross Marines recommendation after installing one on my last boat. Make double sure you press and place it at the 10:00 position and twist the transducer into the 12:00 position so you don't get air bubbles which will give false readings.

Yeah, if you put 5200 on there it isn't coming off. Tough Stuff.
