Really?  do you know what boat or ship   "LIST" is?  Why would your boat "list" to port side? Do you have a heavy weight on the port side?  If you boat is "listing" to port side, it has nothing to do with a sonar transducer!

I will say that the boat was leaning to the left or port side when under throttle

High performance hulls benefit from a shoot thru XP 9 20 (along with the AS SIDB Y cable) ...

Then mount the HDSI on the jackplate with an aftermarket bracket such as the Transducer Shield and Saver ...

If there's no jackplate - mount the HDSI higher on the transom for low speed idle scanning ...
