Professional boat rigger, Andy Kratochvil, of fishlectronics performs a detailed DIY install of a typical fish finder transducer mounting plate. He covers where to place the mounting plate based on hull design considerations, key supplies and tools, as well as a few other tips to ensure the job is done right.


Transducer mounting plates allow for the quick addition and adjustment of transducers with only 2 holes drilled into the boat transom. Fewer holes mean less damage to the transom and reduced chances for leaking. Perhaps most importantly, you gain significant room and range to reposition transducers vertically and laterally to seek optimal fish finder readouts.
