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.
