Personally I believe that I would install a Totalscan on the trolling motor and two separate transducers for the console unit, an LSS-2 and either a skimmer 2D on the transom or a puck style 2D in the bilge. That way the LSS can be mounted higher on the transom or jack plate to protect it during high speed running but still have 2D while on plane.

I would get the HDI down imaging for the trolling motor (turning the trolling motor will distort the image on SI). For the console, suggest the LSS2 and then the puck style (pdt) to go inside the bilge, unless you're running an aluminum rig, then the HST skimmer mounted to the transom low enough to pick up while on plane. then ethernet connect the depthfinders together.
