A couple of shots of transducers: HDS normal skimmer and the LSS-1 structure scan:

They need to be roughly no more than 1-foot apart to get down scan

Steve, you state "[The transducers] need to be roughly no more than 1-foot apart to get down scan." Why is that?

Can I place a tranducer on the starboard side of the engine? If not, how far away from each other do they have to be?

Stan--That's Lowrance specification. I guess it's so that the software can do the overlapping of the signals. Any further than 1-foot I presume would increase inaccuracies. Anywhere on the transom is okay providing you get a good signal from both transducers and the spacing between them is about 1-foot. Mine are [mounted on the] port side simply as I followed the original Boston Whaler wiring. Regards
