    transducer mounting location in a 2013 fx cruiser?

    I'm installing a gps/depth finder in a 2013 FX cruiser. I have the unit mounted but have not been able to choose a location for the transducer. I have seen a bracket made of SS in Australia that attaches to the step bolts on the back. Has anyone found a good place that is accessible inside the hull on this ski or know of a place in the US that makes and sells a bracket for the step bolts on the outside? Ifyou have mounted one on this model ski where did you put it? any pics?

    Most transducers don.t work to good in a Yamaha hull since it has a hull inner liner in it and there is a gap between the hull and the inner liner. Best to mount it outside the hull. Tommy Jordan

    that's what I was afraid of.
    That's the way it looked when I looked inside.any idea who makes a bracket for these so I don't have to screw any holes in the hull? maybe I can attach a piece of starboard to the stern with marine 5200 and then screw the transducer to that

    Their is a product out there where you glue a block to your hull and then screw into that block. That way you save your hull but for the love of God I can't remember the name of it....
