    What do you guys think about placement of the transducer before i drill a big ass hole, couple pictures of were i can put it, I'd prefer the one towards the stern more but don't know if the intake will cause turbulance there, otherwise i could put it forward next to the intake ?

    Tough call. Transducer placement is part art and part science. How far apart at
    the rear location are the intake and ducer apart.? It may actually be “quieter” at the rear location even with the intake upstream. Ideally you would be upstream of any projection but if you are far enough back from one it can be ok. I would put it as far back and to the starboard side on the delta pad if it were me. Good luck.

    This is a B164 in my brothers boat. 20 degree tilted element. Fits perfectly where the hull is sloped. You could do a fairing block or a 0 degree in the flatspot

    From the two photos, I like option 2 better. I think being a couple of feet forward it ensures no turbulence from prop, year still far enough back to ensure no turbulence from bow.

    I like 2nd closer to stern as well but still far enough from prop. But as you initially asked i dont know about turbulance from that intake. you already have spanner nut so i assume you already have 0 deg ducer. If not the 20 deg and putting over opposite intake might be best. But you get close to those rollers on trailer?

    You might put it just a bit forward of pic 2 and test it out. If issue from pickup you might move pickup aft of ducer if you give some room.

    I doubt that pickup up on port step will create issues but it might? As Steve said as far starboard as possible, probably no issues

    My bait tank scoop is forward of the transom mount ducer that I have. One of the 1000w ones. The scoop messes it up. Before installing the scoop the sounder picture was good. Be careful of things forward of your ducer.

    The rear location is 2.5 feet from intake wich i don't feel is enough.
    I shoulda done a 20 degree and put it on starboard side but i already purchased o degree

    So with the bracket on the rear the props are 4 feet behind the stern. The first photo is 14 inches forward of stern and the second is 3 1/2 feet, I'm thinking the two feet difference forward is not gonna make a difference, but I've never had thru hull before ?

    Still rigging all my stuff up, unfortunately I'm out of town for two weeks so it'll be towards the end of month before i get it on the water. Kitsap marina did a sea trial before delivery and they said it handled beautifully 35 mph cruise at 4k rpm and topped out at 53 mph.

    2 feet can make a world of difference. There is a lot of turbulence around the props even on a bracket... it may be fine, it may not.... kinda too late after you have a giant hole in the bottom of your boat. Better question is why not put it forward just to be sure? Do you see it working better at the rear location for some reason? Also as someone else pointed out the rear location is right next to a seacock which can cause turbulence too.

    The photo with it next to the sea cock is forward towards bow, it would be 3 1/2 feet forward of transom, photo of location near bilge pump is 14 inches forward of transom and down stream of intake. And ya giant hole is the reason im getting as much input as i can, thank you

    Gotcha! Totally had myself turned around... the second photo away from seacock is the one I liked best.... maybe slip it forward just a smidge to keep distance from the prop wash.... on choppy days going up and down you could get turbulence...

    The props will not be a factor in either position. If the raw water intake is just
    the mushroom variety, I think the more rearward position will be fine.

    It's a high speed pickup, so im thinking the forward position in line with the pickup is probably gonna be the cleanest water ?

    How about Gorilla taping something like this to your boat and trying to get a first hand understanding of what it looks like.

    Not sure if the video would turn out or not but it’s worth the BD entertainment to try for $12.

    Beautiful boat. Good choice with the G2. Transducer placement will be fine in either location. The bilge will be wet so try to keep it out of standing water.
