I have a 17 foot express boat , recently had a transducer Installed and now I’m getting a huge spray against my motor, do they make a deflector for this ?

Sounds like it’s too low to me. Should just skim across the top with minimal spray, if any. You may ask the folks that installed it.

Bottom of transducer should be flush with the bottom of the hull.

I had a similar problem with a Garmin transducer that was mounted per Garmin specs. They do offer a spray shield for theirs, it’s a thin stainless Steel shield that is installed between the bracket and the transducer. Wasn’t expensive and solved my spray issue.
