Author Topic:   Transducer Mounting Location

I know this topic has been covered before but I am looking for someone to tell me how far from the starboard edge of their Montauk 170 they have mounted their transducer for the best results. I am planing on purchasing a Garmin 178c or a 198c if that matters

It seems that there is a wealth of broad knowledge on this topic but I'm looking for some specifics.

I have the Garmin 188 and I have mounted my transducer on the inboard side of the chine on the stbd side.

works well and has no issues with cavitation or vibration and doesnt interfere with straps for towing.

I mounted my 'ducer on the starboard side of the tramsom, on an imaginary line directly below the lifting eye. Worked perfectly the first time. No adjustments needed.

2004 170 Montauk

probably a stupid question, but where is the "inboard side of the chine"?

Directly below the stbd side Transom Drain hole.

about four inches down from the center of the hole.
