All About Fishfinder Transducers Mounting and Performance

Sound waves are shot within the water by a sensor, also referred to as a transducer. Fish, depth and underwater terrain can be detected by the fisherman on the boat. Transducers are attached to the boat in several different ways.

1. Transom mount transducers tend to be attached by bolting onto the not in the transom, this is below the lower line of the vessel. Ideal for small boats with out board motors, or any trailer boat.

2. Thru-Hull mount transducers are bolted on the hull of the boat forward in the prop. Ideal for the larger boats, especially for your in-board motors.

3. In-Hull mount transducers are glued inside the bottom of the motorboat where it actually shoots sound waves over the hull into the liquid. Ideal for solid fiberglass hulls.

With basic hand tools and a few construction knowledge most families can install the transducers themselves.

All fishfinder products, when purchased in the fishfinder store, come using the proper manuals, and it is wise to mount your transducer despite the fact that your boat is out from the water. If unsure with the skills, refer to a knowledgeable boat mechanic.

There are some fishfinders that come with dual beam transducers, for example Garmin Dual Beam 440c.

The Furuno offers the only Tri-ducer that you can buy that is a transom install fishfinder. The Interphase iScan fishfinder provides a product that has 2 transducers that are mounted on each side in the keel. This product provides 180 degree horizontal checking ability. Whatever your choice is Fishfinders, keep in mind what performance you are looking for and the type of mounting you'll need on your boat.
