Bow Mount Install ???

5 posts in this topic

I am planning the installation of a bow mounted depth finder. Can someone offer some tips on the routing of the transducer cable from the bottom of the trolling motor up the shaft? I've seen photos with the cable spiral wrapped up the shaft but I'm not sure how this works when the motor is stored or extended.

Just watch your pinch points and then use cable ties to connect the cable to the shaft of your motor. That's how we have always done it with no problems.

I guess that would depend on the style of bowmount you have. I have a minnkota powerdive and the way that it slides up to store you can only wrap so far and still be able to bring it up out of the water.

You are making me think a little now, I am considering the same thing. With that one I think you would need to go around the slide mount with the cable. The problem with that would be the loose cable.

Hmmm smile.gif Gonna have to look a little myself now.

Run your transducer cable through the center of your trolling motor coil. Zip tie it where it enters the coil and again where it exits the coil. This should work for you.

Hey Grabs,
Pardon the ignorance but I'm not sure I understand your reference to the trolling motor coil. I also have a MinnKota Power Drive that I'll be attaching the transducer to.
