I’m a transducer gps/fishfinder rookie. Never had a boat with one before. The previous owner had the transducer mounted right in front of a “strake”, I guess that is what that is called. It kicked up a lot of spray all over the motor etc. It no longer worked so we got a new Garmin unit. Followed instructions and mounted new transducer in what I believe is a good spot. It’s supposed to sit slightly below the boat, like 3/8”. First time out and it’s kicking up spray just like the other one. I want to raise it up to level with boat or slightly above. However I already have 5-6 holes back there and don’t want to put any more than necessary. So I want the next location to be right. Any advice?
