brandon7711 posted a topic in Boating and Boat FishingHey everyone, I'm looking at mounting a hummingbird helix 7 SI g3 onto my 15 foot aluminum boat. I am trying to figure out where to put the transducer. My transom is very strange in the fact that it is recessed and the sides extend further out than where the motor is mounted. The previous location (see picture) will not work because side imaging would hit the outboard, and I lose 2d sonar signal on plane. I am looking at mounting the transducer at the green spot marked on one of my pictures. Will this spot be okay? I'm going to use a stern saver, and my motor does not have electric trim (I can adjust a pin to give more clearance). At the moment, the measurement from the transom to the leading edge of the motor is 7", if I move it out one pin then I have 9" of clearance. I am worried most about side imaging clearance and if the transducer is too close to the motor (read somewhere that I needed 15", I would only have about 8.5 - 9") Thank you for any suggestions or help. Really trying to make this side imaging unit work on my boat.
