Getting new electronics for my 28te going to do sidescan for the sonar. Will I need to do two transducers or one? Thanks Bob

two would be better IMO. I did one and it was where the PO had a large shoe. It was a issue in shallower water but I fish deeper so not a deal breaker for me. If you are fishing in 30' of water you should have two. I just did a electronics upgrade on my 28 before I sold her but my Silverton I did two transducers. Very happy with two.
