Shoot trhu hull transducer

Ok, since I posted this thread got the transducer.. It a Norcross Hawkeye depth sounder...
Has anyone worked with it? I'm planning on installing it this coming weekend.
I'm thinking on a thru-hull instalation, how ever my boat has a balsa cored hull. I willl "digg" into de ourter layar of fiber glass and then fix it to the boat.
What do you think about this setup?
The transducer also works as a transom mount, but I think it wouldn't work because my boat has a reverse angle in the transome, also I'm not sure if the transducer will be underwater all times.
My rudders is a spade type and I think with the movement, air bubbles will be created.
Any way I'll try different spots, but any information is appreciated.
