I am buying a 2005 22 Cruiser, and getting conflicting reports about whether there are uncored portions of the hull when I could install an in-hull transducer. Has anyone found a good location with no core?

Mutski,
First of all you are posting in the "boats for sale" column. Go to the general posts forum and repost this one. On my 2008 C-Dory 22' cruiser I located a spot below the galley counter near the aft bulkhead and just to starboard of the lubberline. I "carefully" ground out a 3" diameter portion of the cabin sole down to the outer hull surface and then filled it with a bubble free dense mixture of solid fiberglass. After carefully surfacing this "pad', I epoxied the transducer to this pad being certain not to include air bubbles in the mixture. Upon completion the sounder worked perfectly for ten years.
