[CA] [CA11] DST transducer(s) for 25 to 28 degree deadrise

[CA11] DST transducer(s) for 25 to 28 degree deadrise
I need helping selecting a transducer(s), DST, for a small trailerable sailboat. It is a Cheoy Lee Frisco Flyer. Full keel, transom hung rudder 3.9" draft, 7.2' beam, 25' long. Deadrise is 25 to 28 degrees where there is room to install transducers. The boat has a Raymarine Axiom 7 RV chartplotter.

The DST800L seems like it might work but that makes for a very large fairing block that could be damaged when launching or retrieving it from the trailer. Also, the beamwidth is 44 degrees and would hit the keel. If the beam hits the keel will that give an erroneous depth reading or just limit it's use when heeling? I considered using a 20 degree tilt DT800 with a small fairing block but it has just a 12 degree beamwidth. Seems like with any heeling at all that would be a problem.

Both the DST800 and ST800 do not show speeds below 2 kts. Are there models that are good below 2 kts?

I'd appreciate help in selecting transducer(s) for the boat.
