Transducer block replacement ?

We are hauling out in a couple of week when I get home and one of the things on the list is to replace the rotten wood transducer block. Any suggestions on material besides wood?

Starboard is a high density plastic that can be easily cut molded or shaped with woodworking tools. It is strong and impervious to water. Sold at west marine and other stores. I think it would be a good choice for your application.

mike dryver is on a distinguished road
wildcard there is a priority block you can get for the trans ducer made of high impact plastic. it has the hole for the trans. already in it and is shaped like a parabolic. all you have to do is cut along the length to the angel of intersect for your hull. am assuming your trans. is not mounted center line fwd of keel, but on either side of keel. helped a friend do his worked pretty nifty. just don't use 5200 or equiv. like he did, had to destroy block to get off (good thing you still have the other half from when you cut it) he had a bad trans. on first one and changed units this past spring. i believe he got it at west marine in the cat.
