    Default swap livescope between boats

    I generally fish from my 1548 jon boat when I go by myself but when I take a friend along it is usually in my 20' Skeeter. Is there a way to easily swap the livescope system between boats? I'm waiting for delivery and thought I'd throw this out there and see what comes up.

    Mine wouldn't be hard to do at all. I guess all you would need is power.

    Easy enough to switch heads between boats, was wondering more about swapping the transducer between boats. Are you using the trolling motor shaft on both boats or one of the transducer poles to swap with some type of base in each boat?

    I have a similar setup as you descibe, switching between a 17' Sylvan tin and a 21' glass Skeeter walleye boat.

    I mounted a piece of plywood wood with machine screw Tnuts on the backside for the GLS10 module(4.5lbs) to mount with 4 machine screws under the driver helm for quick removal.

    Added an extension cable for the Livescope transducer cable from the helm to the bow.
    I then can disconnect the transducer at the bow and the extension at the helm module and just leave the extension cable in the Skeeter.


    The module gets mounted in a box with 4 studs and connects to the transducer and sits on the front deck for the tin boat use.

    The Livescope transducer is stick mounted with a Cisco quick mount with a base plate on each boat.

    Depending on how you set up and wire the boats, it can be an easy or PIA exchange between boats.

    A extra power cable so each boat has it's own and possibly an extra network cable to the graph, depending on you situation.

    So long as you run power cables in each boat it shouldn’t be any trouble at all depending on how you mount the transducer. I mounted mine on a separate pole and use a ram mount to connect to boat. You could do that and just buy a ball for each boat.

    Set it up where it is portable like they do for ice fishing and you can carry it anywhere you want to.

    I have the same question and would love to see some set ups... I have a 22ft bay boat I mainly use, but also have a fishing pontoon when the family is coming along. I would like an easy way to move the 93sv and transducer to the other boat..
    I'm going to mount transducer on another pole, and need to figure out how that mounting/bracket would be also
