I've always been told that some where near the raw water pick up(IE not in front of it) and before the strut is a good place. You're looking to get the least amount of disturbed water across the point of the transducer.
It doesn't even read correctly sitting still. My baseline is way off. In about 10 feet of water it was reading between 3 and 6 feet, sporadically.
If the hull isn't cored, I may have screwed up my deadrise mounting angle?
