Author Topic: Tranducer mounting for 12' aluminum

This is what I do for portable FF.

I use a different clamp than this one but you get the idea.

Lowrance makes a suction cup adapter to your transducer which I went out and bought and it is great. Sticks onto the back easily and pops off in a heart beat. They are about $25 depending where you look.

This one is made out of some spare plastic channel I had for some trellis work. Your local hardware store should have it. Will fit on any size boat.

I'm going to have to set up a mount similar to yours,since the suction cup will not hold on to my inflatable.At least until I permanently glue it on.
I was able to find the proper glue for the boat at Zodiac in Tilbury (Delta)

I would stay away from permanently gluing it onto your boat.

I like the simple fact that when I want to go from one place to the next at full speed, I can just loosen the clamp, pull the transducer in and go. I don't find I need my a FF/depth sounder when at full speed, and when I get close to my next destination, I simple slow down at put it back on, takes two seconds.

I also like the fact that when I'm back at camp I can grab the FF, along with my rods, etc. etc. and and take it to my campsite in the event that the boat has to be a ways away from "MY" campsite.

People will steal anything that isn't bolted down these days so why give them a freebie.

Another way to do this is get a piece of aluminum flat bar, measure the length needed from the top of your transom to where you want the transducer, then measure the thickness of the transom, and finally, measure down a good 8 inches from the top of your transom to the inside of your boat where the gas tank would usually sit.

Bend the aluminum where the measurements are and now you have a "slide on/over transom" piece, no clamp needed. Just attach the wire and transducer to the flat bar and vwalla your done. You could also drill a hole and add a set screw to the inside in case you find it moves a little back and forth
