Looking for options or ideas on mounting a graph up front.

The bridge mounts that go over a trolling motor foot pedal tray are the most sturdy.

Precision Sonar has models for single and double units.

I use a bridge bracket from PrecisionSonar and I couldn't be happier. They also make one for just single units.

Holy moly -- that's a lot of bow mounted HDS stuff! If I can ask - why two units on the bow?

Maybe its an age thing, but I needed my graph off the floor so I could see it!!!

My back seat partner likes it too, because he can see it from the back of the boat.

I upgraded my console graph, and it left me with an extra HDS8. I do a lot of offshore fishing and it's nice having 2 up front. 1 sonar and 1 map. I probably don't need 2, but it's nice to have them.

I just got a bow bracket from precision sonar it's the best set up I've seen. High quality material all hardware provided and very prompt service. My next mounting project will come from them!!!!

I used the large Ram Mount for ease of removing when staying overnight anywhere.

I had a Balzout on my last boat and it worked great.

My V-20 has the percision mount that raises the graph about 2" and mounts over the front of the TM foot pedal. I like this set up due to the layout of the front deck.

DFW Fisherman,
I run a HDS 9 split in two screens most of the time with map and down imiaging, I also have a HDS 5 flush mounted that I run on sonar. This way I can view 3 different screens and not have to split a 9 three ways.

Bass boat technology is the best I've used. They are on a lot of tour boats.

Balzout or Bass Boat Technology. I have Balzout and I don't care how ruff the water is they don't move and are adjustable for different angles where BBT is not.
