fishinfool,

when mounting a skimmer style transducer there are a couple of things to remember.

1. the tranducer must be level.  if not, then you don't get a correct reading.

2. may sure that the skimmer will not be catching a lot of bubbles or turbid water from the boat hull

3. may sure that you seal up any holes you in the hull.

Good Luck, & Good fishing

Sorry didn't see you hideing out way down here.  ;D  That is how mine is mounted. Then tie wrap the cable onto the TM shaft. Allow some a little excess to go around the mount and to allow for adjustment and stowing if you have a bow mount. I split some aquarium tubeing and placed it around the cable any where there was a chance it might pinch. Then taped it up every few inches. That helped to stiffen it and allows it to move out of the way. It also helps if it would hang on brush. If you have a power drive I guess you still need help, other than I can give.
