I got a brand new Lowrance Elite 4x CHIRP with DSI. I'm looking for mounting options. A scupper mount wont work with this transducer on a Jackson Cuda because it's too big. The transducer would be sitting below the boat, which is an unacceptable risk of damage. So my options are a side mount, a home fabbed rear mount of the skid plate, or mounting inside the hull.
I really like the idea of shooting through the hull since the transducer would be protected. I'm concerned about losing resolution. Does anyone have experience with a CHIRP and DSI model and shooting through the hull?
