    Default must transducer be on starboard side?

    must transducer be on starboard side?

    I have one main 175hp engine w/ a standard right hand propeller the transducer is mounted on the starboard side just inside the trim tab.


    I've been wanting to add a 10HP kicker engine it would be much easier to rig on the startboard side however I don't want it interfering w/ the transducer.


    could the transducer be relocated to the port side?this would require extending the cable.

    Yes, as long as you have sufficient wiring. The transducer wire typically doesn't like a splice..

    Some manufacturers offer an extension cable for transducers with connectors.

    ray marine has a extension cable.

    main concern is turbulence w/ a starboard kicker interfering w/ the transducer. thanks TB
