Tired of fussing with my temperamental troller.

I'm gonna buy a new one with spot lock for my Pontoon. I'm looking at one that allows the unit to be removed on days I am only riding around with family. I usually keep the transducer on the trolling motor, but with this setup, that will not work.

So I need ideas as to how to place the transducer somwhere that will not get knocked off the first time I trailer the boat. I pull it every month or so to powerwash it.

Thanks in advance for your ideas...

Why not? I installed a 112 60in. Ultrex on a Bennington pontoon. You cannot use the US-2 transducer but I mounted the Helix 7 di transducer on the trolling motor, seams fine. You can get a transducer extension cable to disconnect when removing the trolling motor.

You can try this:

I use it, but it's mainly to combat interference.

The one DaveDave has is a good one.

This works great for pontoons.
