It will read right through your aluminum. I've done it a hundred times with a Vex.

Leacher, what about a fiber glass boat, would it still work? Thanks, The perch

I tried mine in a aluminum boat and it didn't work. I put the ducer over the side of the boat and to me, it was way to sensitive.

It will work on an aluminum Boat. Fiberglass probably not. A friend of mine clued a plastic cup to the bottom of the boat with the bottom cut out of it and added water that seemed to work good. When we did it on a whim one time we just used the water that was laying on the floor of boat and it worked great for reading depth!

As far as sensitivity being a problem that can be adjusted!
