I know this question has been asked before. I search the site before this post. Can anyone tell me what their experiences have been on the subject? What postion works best? What kind of unit do you have?
Greatly appreciated :)

while not a montauk, my Nauset has the transducer mounted on the transom, starboard side, to the right of the strake.
It's a 3D transducer for a Hummingbird Matrix 35. Works well in this location, the bracket is the kick up type to protect the Ducer in the event of grounding. Temp and speed unit is mounted on port side of transom same general location outside of strake where there is little water turbulance.

I saw the articles. I also reviewed the site finding other posts. There were differing opinions. Sorry about the double post

Do it exactly like jimh describes in his article and you will be golden. I followed it on my newport and It worked perfectly from the get go with no adjustment.
