    Default 797si Mounting...pics

    Mounted the xducer as shown For Pro Crappie 175
    Works for me .


    1. Made a 3 x 3 aluminum plate
    2. Drilled hole pattern in plate to fit existing holes in hull
    3. Drilled and tapped 8-32 screw holes patterned to 797 si mount
    4. Screwed Si mount to plate
    5. Ground excess screw thread off (back) to ensure flushmount
    6. Removed screws so I could mount plate to hull
    7. Covered the back of 3 x 3 plate with marine silicon for secure mounting
    8. Screwed plate to hull
    9. Screwed the xducer mount bracket to plate
    10. Mounted transducer to its bracket

    Thanks. A new member here did the machine work. His name is Catwagon. I just did the screwing. haha

    Ment to identify that this is full down trim on the motor. As you can see, the xducer is below the cavitation plate and has a clear shot to the other side off the hull. I have no problems WOT.

    Sweet install Cane Pole.
    We've done the same to a company boat in the past but used double-sided tape instead of the silicone.

    Thanks,

    Yep, that supervisor tape (two faced) is good stuff. That is what I call it anyway. I have stuck temporary stuff on me stuff with supervisor tape in the past. Almost as good as duct tape. nah........

    Would it make any difference if the transducer was on the other side of the boat? The reason I ask is because my factory transducer is mounted on the left side. Also do you get very much of a rooster tail from the transducer?

    No on the mounting.

    I don't know about the rooster tail. I can't look and drive. I will check it out this weekend and let you know. I have no problems WOT. That equates to about 33 mph. I got A 60HP 4 STROKE Merc Bigfoot pushing my boat. Not too bad for this combination. I usually run about 4000 rpm. I ain't gonna set any speed records, but I ain't got too far to go.
