Hi everyone. I have to questions regarding the location of a new Simrad transom mount all-in-one transducer. This came with a new Simrad GO9.

1. Should I position the transducer so that the bottom of the ducer is in line with the bottom of the boat, or 1/4 to 1/2 inch lower? The installation instructions say in-line. Everything else I read says a little lower.

2. Am I ok if I position it less than 15 inches from the centerline of the boat plus half the diameter of the propellor? I’m closer by about 3 inches. If I go further out it will be mount ER at the chine or strake.

Thanks in advance.

Bill

My 3 into 1 runs immediately down the bracket on the stbd side. If you are on your phone viewing this thread, you can pinch and zoom into this area to see my installation. No problems reading while running or bottom fishing. Sorry, its' the only pic of my transom I could find...
