Yes, if mounted properly in a water bath. That way does seem like a lot of hassle with such easy over-side-mounts available.

It will read through the hull if you use Marine Goop. Build a dam just larger than the transducer, fill the pool with a layer of Goop, making sure not to stir any bubbles into it, and force the transducer all the way down into it. Tape or weight it down for 24 hours and yer done. I generally clean the area first with some alcohol. It'll last for years if you do it right.

That's what I did. I have mounted 100 of transducers in the slump of bass boats when in school I work for a sporting good store back in the 70. I just did not know if there was air in plalstic.
