I bought the suction cup only to find out that it doesnít fit all Lowrance transducers.
In the end used jubilee clips to attach it to the bottom of my outboard.

How deep do you have the motor in the water ? Only asking incase the disturbance of the motor would effect the signal from the transducer

As others have said - use a bit of baton screw a little bit on the end ( to take the transducer bracket) then g clamp to the boat. I done it at the weekend after my proper one broke - works a treat !!

Use a transducer suction cup. Cheap, small and doesn't move a bit even if I fish for a week.

Greetz,

This is going to be hard to describe but hey ho. Picture a giant T made from poles, flat end near your knees across boat supported on the sides, other pole to rear of boat with transducer on. 2 6" squares of ply with 4 bolts, 1 square either side of T joint, bolts clamping wood to poles, sonar mount on upper piece.
We used copper pipe as one of us had it but you could use anything. Our transducer mount was a 15mm T drilled out to 15mm so 15mm copper pipe passed through it, get the height sorted and put a peg on pipe above T....very high tech but gives you a idea.

Easily done on the water mate... went to start the engine once but somehow managed to backhand the missus and give her a black eye
