    Any suggestions as to where the best place to mount my transducer should be? 15007449102971210121623.jpg

    Welcome to the forum.

    There's no real ideal location generally, you are limited with transom mounts, so it gets placed where it can be. This is unfortunate, though a reality, but you can make adjustments to improve signal strength and clarity.

    Have a look here;

    which is a starting point. I've found high speed transom mounts very unreliable in terms of information they can offer. I think through hull transducers are far superior and can be located where the information is more useful.
