Re: Raymarine ST40 speed transducer nearly sunk me

It is possible when you installed the tube part (Or thru hull) pressure was not even and the tube got out of round. With uneven hull and bilge surfaces this is quite possible. The metal fitting would help but I would check and make sure your mounting surfaces are flat and parallel inside and out. A little tuning with a small grinder might fix the problem. It could also be a part defect or a heavy scratch inside the tube. Take a deep calming breath and look at it carefully. Hopefully a bit of adjusting will solve the problem. Good luck
