huminbird hdr 610 depth finder

does anyone know the frequency[khz] of a huminbird hdr 610 depth finder?i bought this elcheapo for a backup for my good sounder with a thru hull transducer,the huminbird came with a transom mounted tranducer but it going to be nearly imposible to mount,i'm very sceptcal that it will shoot thru the hull! my paceship has a very thick hull,i do have a really nice bronze transducer [new] that i can mount quite easy on the stern,it has a frequency of 200 khz,i'm wondering if i can use it with the huminbird reciever?

It probably will shoot through the hull with no problem. There's a way to test this before mounting the transducer.

Fill a zip-loc bag with water, place it on the hull in a location somewhere between the keel and waterline, then place the transducer on the water-filled bag. Be sure the depth finder's sensitivity is set to automatic--it should read the bottom. If it works, this is the location where you should mount the transducer. Be sure to follow the mounting instructions, sanding the area, using the correct adhesive, etc...

thanks travlineasy,maybe i'll try that before tampering with the other ducer,according to the info i got a hard epoxy [resin] is necessary to bond the trasducer to the hull because a soft material ie silicone will absorb the sound waves[pings]
