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.

    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942    
    • Nick, so what are the top schemes the left plans to conjure up for impeachment?
    • Go Pats. They need one for the thumb.
