Thoughts please people
I have a fishfinder that I want to install on the pontoon but the area around the transom is in very turbulent water.
On the back of the toons is a U shaped metal bracket and I'm thinking of bolting an aluminum plate to it, sandwiched between the bracket and another piece of aluminum using thumbscrews and then dropping it into the water with the transducer bolted to it.
That should put the transducer into clean water away from propwash and turbulence. It's not a high speed pontoon boat by any means and it's in the marina most of the year so no worries about trailering and if I wanted to beach then I could simply pull up the transducer by releasing the thumbscrews. I can also adjust the depth of the transducer in the water.
How does everyone else mount their transducer and how successful was it?
