depth transducer placement

I am guessing that the farther back I place my through deck transducer, the more likely I will avoid ariated water, splash and air - anybody had success with this> I am using the new hawk micro that many use on PWC's - takes more sampling than standard and has a very small readout.

Figured I'd bump you back up to the top. I think BriEOD just did a depth finder install. He may be able to help.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I have mine located about 10 in. to the right of the prop shaft packing gland.
It works fine there.

I just installed mine two weeks ago. I put it just where the two above did, on a flat spot right next to the blower hose. I can't believe how well it works, and I don't know why I've waited so long to put a depth finder in.

Here is another vote for the area right of the propshaft and between the coupler and stuffing box. Mine is a Humminbird and works well there.

How does that one work for you?? No bouncing between 13-17 when sitting in 15’. Just asking because I think that is the one I am going to buy and one review suggested it may occasionally have an erratic reading..
