mounting transducer?

8 posts in this topic

I have an older x45 lowrance unit i would like to use on my canoe. Im looking for a way to make the mounting of the transducer portable. Can i purchase a suction cup through someone that I can screw my transducer right onto? or do I have to look at buying a new ducer to get the type of mount i want?

guess what im trying to get at is can i just buy the suction cup seperate and mount the transducer onto it myself? or do I have to buy the transducer/suction cup in a package?

If not does anyone have a suggestion on a way I can mount my transducer without having to screw it into my canoe?

You could make one.

Ever see those quick release Squeeze wood clamps at the Home Stores. They are paded and come in differnt lengths. Clamp it to the side of the boat and attach a down rod to the shaft of the clamp. Attach your transducer to the down rod and cable tie the wires.

You can make the down rod adjustable or fixed, whatever works best.

I used the mounting bracket and shaft from an old fried trolling motor found at a garage sale, just clamp on the side like the trolling motor would be. Works great. wink

Slick, I had good luck shooting threw the hull in my canoe using silicone to hold it in place.

    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy. 
    • There sure isn't any rhyme or reason to the costs. I think you stand a lot better chance for a good price in the summer though when you can take your house to a job site and they don't have set up and clean up costs involved. 
    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
