Transducer Mount
« on: July 09, 2019, 04:37:13 PM »
I have never been happy with the plastic transducer mounting bracket. It is well made and probably would have been fine. One problem is that the teeth on the adjustable hinge limit the adjustment to tooth-to-tooth. On my boat, either it was too far up or too far down.  And I’d rather have SS than plastic.

The new metal bracket is expensive and the reviews say that it rusts. It is very heavy duty. (Should be for the cost $$$). They sent me three English installation manuals.

Now I am able to get infinate adjustment of the angle...We’ll see how it works.  🤷🏼‍♂️

Very nice Croaker, good upgrade and having the infinite adjustments comes in handy when you're on the water and need a quick adjustment.  :clap:

That bracket looks much better! I had the same problem with an old Lowrance transducer. Was either to high, or too low. It had these little plastic gears that you could re-align, but it was a PITA to get it right.
