Ram mounts work well on most boat consoles.

Balzout mounts is better for your larger units.
Little bigger ball helps in rough water, more secure, IMO
Both brands are good

You might check with this guy, I know he makes them for Basscats, but he might have one that would fit your boat.

A $3 PVC bushing from Lowes painted black and about $50 in Ram mount parts. Oh, and a $5 rod sleeve cut to fit.

I have one coming now. Will be mounted in front on the deck of the recessed foot control for my Minn Kota. Will be mounting a HB 1199 to the deck.
This guy has come up with a great idea not only for the front deck BUT to the consoles as well and won't 'break the bank'!!!

I have a RAM mount up near the console. If you are mounting one of the new larger Lowrance or Huminbird units, you have to 'cradle' it in your arms so as to not to let it fall when mounting it to and taking it off the boat (that is if you do that, I do).
It's a pain. The new units are large and EXPENSIVE, the last thing you want to do is take a chance on dropping one! Disaster....

I'd suggest a RAM mount.
