Where to locate transducer??

Recommended Posts

Hey. I have a Javelin 379, which has 3 "steps" in the stern. Therefore, i dont know where to put the transducer of the Elite 7 hdi im installing, since i want to to be able to get readings while on plane. In the picture you can see where the previous td was mounted, of course i couldnt get readings while on plane on that location. 

So, has any of you solved this problem?? Maybe i should install it in the middle step? 

Bte the temp sensor is from an older unit and i dont want to epoxy it on the bilge...

thank you!

For a transom mount transducer to function when the hull is on the water's surface, it has to be at or just below the bottom of the hull. The mount would be on the transom step where the hull drain is. It is as simple as that.

Can you epoxy it in the bilge and shoot through? Or get one you can?

thanx. in my picture, it seems the best spot would be where the lower bunk is?? between the ribs as low as it can go?? i will see if i can put it between the 2 bunks... i have never seen one installed so low, i guess noone wants readings on plane???

i read somewhere you cant epoxy the one i have and keep all the functions, including temp and downscan... and even if i could, i prefer not to epoxy it....
