1) RTV—Room Temperature Vulcanizing, usually a silicone sealant of some sort, generally used for making gaskets and such.
2) The whole bottom part of the transducer should be immersed if you are doing it for real, the whole bottom should be covered for testing.
Generally, I don't recommend silicone, but putting the transducer in a piece of oil-filled PVC pipe that has been glassed to the hull. But that's just me, and the way I learned to do this.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
