Id install it on that middle step if your motor wont interfere with the imaging and if i had to go with the bottom step id move it pretty high up. Thats my personal opinion especially if you have another graph that can read while youre on plane
THis one will be the one while using while on plane. I wont use much sonar on plane though...I will use the unit and its maps.
Thought about getting a manual jackplate that will set the motor a bit away to give me some more options, but I really dont want to get one just for that. I guess I would receive the other added benefits from having a jackplate. My unit (Garmin 73sv) is coming in, in the next 2-3 days and I will prob just have to see what kind of clearance I have. I hesitant to install on last step, then its basically a part of the bottom of the boat...dont know about that.
anyways, thanks for the comments and I will welcome any and all!
