I purchased the 550C, but gave some thought to the transducer mounting. Looking at a couple of dozen boats and seeing every configuration possible for mounting, I did a lot of research on mounting. It appears that most of the mountings are just throw it on. Since this thing cost some money, I wanted the best return possible. Taking every thing from prop turbulence to the bottom of the boat into my thoughts, I eventually decided to build a removable mount that clamped to the transom. By chance I came across a portable transducer mount in a Cabela's catalog. I bought it and it looks like it'll work just fine. I'll fine tune the location on the transom this fall. Now if only the weather would cooperate.
