Transducer mounting Board
« on: January 28, 2021, 01:40:58 pm »
Rather than poke new holes in the boat to mount my new TM165 transducer, I think I will install a mounting board. Seems to be lots available. Any recommendations?

Good idea! They are almost all made in some kind of plastic; not only the board save holes in the transom but also the fact that it put put the transducer a little farther even by 1 in. And I know guys that stick 2 plates so the transducer is even farther. That help the reading going at high speed

I used a piece of puck board 1/2" thickness. 2 screws into old holes in hull and a generous dab of 3-M 5200 adhesive.
