Airmar PM-265 Pocket Mount CHIRP Transducer
Maximum performance, no drag, and increased fuel efficiency. Ideal for sportfishing vessels, high-speed
powerboats, or smaller boats where installation of a high-performance transducer is not possible due to trailer, lift,
or hull limitations.
Pocket and Keel-Mounted transducers are installed flush to the hull. A flush installation positions the transducers
face parallel to the waterline resulting in a beam that is vertically oriented for maximum echo return and incredible
performance at speed. Optimum performance is achieved because the face of the transducer is in direct contact
with the water, providing the best sensitivity. There is no drag because the transducer is installed either flush into
a flat spot located along the keel or into a custom pocket. Boat builders can create a detail in their mold so that
a pocket is formed along the keel. The transducer is then inserted into the pocket from the outside of the hull
allowing future upgrades without altering the finished hull. Aftermarket installation requires routing a hole in the
hull and glassing the transducer flush to the running surface. Running performance is maintained and prop and
intake cavitations are eliminated.
