Just got a new boat and need to move my transducer over to it. It's a Champion but the bottom is shaped a little different than my last boat. Putting on the HD transducer for an humminbird 899. Where do I need to place it to get the best results? I plan on using a stern saver transducer mount.

ON the transom just below the right side engine mount bolts with the transducer hanging down below the transom in the step space.

Use a shoot-thru XP 9 20 transducer for depth/2D sonar and connect the two transducers to the display with the AS SIDB Y cable.

That is the PROPER installation for that hull type like this edited picture I did for someone:

Got it mounted there and works like a charm. Now have to look into a shoot thru transducer and will pay someone to mount that one.
