Transducer Help Please
I have a 2013 FX Sho Cruiser and can not find a good location in the hull to mount the transducer, I am not interested in mounting it on the outside, if I can help it. Anyone have any ideas? I was considering buying a puck style, but I am not finding room for it.
Any help would be appreciated

The new Yamahas are made of a composite called Nano-Excel that is not recommended to try and shoot through. Both my FXHO's are transom mounted.

This is on a 2011 VXs Nano Excel hull......No problems with the readings...stuck down with pure silicone......just behind the mid wall....Make sure there is NO air bubbles....

Did you try a different location?

That may be an area where there are air bubbles in the hull? ....can you move it either direction a few inches and remount it?

I know this is an old post, but I bought the helix 5 with sidescan, and am looking to transom mount the transducer on my fx ho 2014... There are warnings that say not to mount outside when going 65 or over, and 99% of the time I won't be, but it scared me that it has that warning.. if I'm going to be going close to that sometimes.. Anyone have any issues with this, or have experiences to go aroud this? I don't want to drill holes in my jetski, so I want to try and run a bracket from the step bar,
thanks in advance,
