I want to get a fishfinder for my 150 Sport, but I don't like the idea of drilling into the hull. Any ideas of best way to mount the transducer?

I'm planning on epoxying a small block of starboard or maybe half of one of these smaller transducer blocks from Cabelas on the transom to drill and tap for the transducer.

Rather than drill for the screw-in cable holders, I might tape the cable in place against the transom firmly and then running a bead of sealant across the cable horizontally with maybe 3/4" of sealant on either side, in 2-3 places.

Do a search on this site, there is a guy that explains how to attach a starboard block with 3M 5200 adhesive and dovetails on the back of the starboard. I did like he said and I have had good luck, and no holes in the hull.

Here's the thread tw is referring to:

http://continuouswave.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/001425.html

where smo details the dovetailed StarBoard plus 5200 mounting.

Fortunately, the link is still alive to his webpage that shows pictures of the transducer mounted thusly:

Thanks to tw for point this out, and to smo for sharing it with us.

Rereading the web page carefully, I see it wasn't necessarily StarBoard. Sorry about the confusion.
