C-30 Location for speed/depth transducers

I am planning on installing new Raymarine ST60 speed/deptch transducers in my '91 Catalina 30' and would like to locate them forward of the keel however there is not access that I can find. I currently have old through hull fittings located within a foot or so to the port side of the engine under the sink. What is the typical or best location for these fittings? Thanks for your help

Dollars for doughnuts ... you will find them on either side of the mid plane just behind of the bow water tank. Very easy to access and observe. They are generally about 8" on either side of the mid plane and 6" back from the water tank. I have recently looked at many boats and have only found two which did not match this config. Other than keeping the depth sensor in front of the keel (not by that much to really matter) and the easy access from the v-berth there may not be anything more pressing for this choice of locations. Dont know if the water flow across the speed sensor is more predictable; I guess most important is to stick them somewhere you can get to it easily. Hope this helps. If you want variability try to figure out where the flux gate compass (autohelm) will be mounted.

Thanks! I will dig into the V-berth and look for clear space forward of the keel
