I am thinking back to a thread from last year. Didn't you guys say it is best to mount any transducers on the port side? I believe this was due to help engine torque, etc..
I am mounting the ducer for a Garmin FF. Thanks for any advice. Rex

Yep, port side. The prop flow tends to
keep the ducer in the water a little more
on that side.

I am also replacing a transom transducer. Do I place it inline with the hull angle/V or place it flat such as the water surface will be? How far below the hull bottom should it be mounted. Thank you.

I'm replacing an existing transducer from a Furuno FE-606 echo sounder that I'm removing from my Montauk to the Depth/Temp/Speed transducer for my existing Furuno GP-1080F. Instructions say to mount the transducer 8" starboard of the centerline. Not sure what the difference between 8" port of the centerline and 8" starboard of the centerline is, but I'll follow their directions none-the-less.
