Transducer mounting help
« on: May 31, 2016, 05:08:40 PM »
Trying to figure out where I can mount my transducer.  Boat is a SeaArk with a V hull that makes mounting a transducer a challenge.  The transducer is an XHS 9 HDSI 180 T.  I don't know if the picture I took of the boat will make or not, but I'll try and explain:

Looking at the transom and on the left side.

First location is only 11.5 inches away from the boat centerline, and motor.  This location (because it is a V-hull) rises about 3.5 inches above the centerline.  Centerline defined as the center, bottom of the transom.

Second location is 16 inches away from the boat centerline, and motor.  This location rises about 5.25 inches above the centerline. This location is also where one of the trailer bunks is located but I have room to moved the boat a little further back on the trailer in order to clear the bunk.

Any suggestions?

I fish for sustenance, which is why I fish for crappie.  If I sport fish, I flyfish for trout.

Position "A" will more likely have the xducer in the water at higher boat speed ...

It would be a good idea to use a mounting board attached to your transom so that drilling more than one xducer location will not be putting extra holes in your transom ...

Rickie,

Thanks for the opinion - I do think position "B" would be out of the water on plane and "A" would be the better choice.  Besides, when I am using the SI I'll be idling slowly and the prop being this close probably won't affect the image that much.  My next boat WILL NOT be a deep V but something with more of a flat (or near flat) transom.
