    Where to locate transducer w/ kicker & trim tabs

    I understand w/ my main engines propeller being clockwise (standard rotation ) the ducer must be located on starboard side.

    That being said when I add a kicker am I forced to mount on port side?

    I was planning on mounting the kicker to starboard side then attach lower section of ladder to dive platefowm on port side.


    Edit : I have added trim tabs.
    Thanks TB

    A transducer can be mounted in the hull, if desired. I would also think you could mount it forward of the kicker's lower leg. Rig it up and have a look. I'll bet you can squeeze it in there, in spite of it looking too tight currently.

    I have read that inside hull transducers won't work inside a aluimin hull only fiberglass hulls.

    want do you think about the magnetic type ducer mounts I would like the option of removing when not being used.
