Morgan 49 OI core or solid hull?

Cannot get my Garmin ecosounder transducer to work from inside the hull and I wonder if it is because hull is foan cored. Does anyone know? Thank you

My ecosounder transducer puck works well through the hull of my Morgan OI 41. The hulls of these vessels are not cored. Have you tested different areas further from the keel centerline by placing the transducer on a waterfilled zip-lock bag? Take care and joy, Aythya crew

I'm sure you've figured it out by now, but just in case, I've got some old factory information sheets on a Morgan 49 that shows it to be an Airex cored hull. Good luck.

It really is a 49, a fairly rare bird. The 49 and 51 were Airex core, but I'm pretty sure the rest of the OIs were solid core.
