  • transom mount transducer on bracket boats?

    anyone done this and how do you get through the bracket and mount? Next project is non mako, lack of mounting space with tabs and bracket.Only way I can see is a clam shell coming out the transom way above the water line. Anyone drilling holes thru the bracket to fish the wire through? Any suggestions and pics would be helpful, thanks in advance...

    Some pics of what you have would help. With my Armstrong bracketed 224 (now gone), I had JUST enough room to mount both sonar & speed transducers. without resorting to drilling the bracket.

      Most that I have seen mount the transducer on the transom below the bracket then run the wire up around the bracket tub then through the transom. A couple quick searches on Google Images should give you a ton of examples.

        A thru hull transducer is a MUCH cleaner installation when dealing with a bracket, more expensive but no wires in harms way.

          thanks all, ss it has now a thru hull transducer with a Garmin 541 the previous owner put in. Is the exact reason I'm not a fan of through hulls. You drill holes in the boat and within a few years the technology changes? I could be wrong but from what I'm told the newer transducers that can utilize down vu and side scanning want them as close to the center of the boat as possible. Which would mean drilling another hole in the hull, last thing I want to do. Looking at a Garmin echomap 94SV now, i'll see if I can make it work?
