Missing Parts/ Mounting Options
Some of the washers were missing and the package was not sealed all the way but one quick call and they were shipped out pronto. Someone else also said the same thing about missing parts. One thing they dont mention is that the vertical mount can be attached to a pole or round bar because it is designed with a "V" in the back nice touch. Very solid mount works great. Great USA product!

Good Product "Parts Missing"
Product is good and will hold good size object. Package was missing pieces., One Phone call to RAM informed me that they wanted to communicate via E-mail.. So e-mail sent and informed them that almost all the hard ware was missing from Package. 2 days later E-mail received saying parts were in the mail. 5 day total and parts were received. Not bad customer service and good Product. But if you pick this up in the store make sure you get all the nuts and washers.

Very sturdy and swivels in two different places. I have used other gimball mounts but none are as stable as this one.

I have the same Fish finder i used those plastic straps to mount it to the top securely. The top of the mount doesnt have holes and the thing is made of steel and would take forever to drill holes in it. So a simple solution is to just use those straps once secured you can turn the fishfinder the other way and once mounted the fishfinder is adjustable ,you can turn it to your position. Fits perfectly on my Porta/Bote
I don't think it would be that tough to remove. You could just unscrew the part of the mount that holds the fish finder from the part of the mount that is on the boat. When I say "unscrew" I mean just turn the knob that you would loosen to allow the fish finder to pivot on the base. Very simple to do and would take minutes.
At the device mounting end of the mount is a rectangular 6.25" x 2" plate. Dimensions: A. Center of knob to center of ball socket: 6" B. Overall length of swing arm assembly: 10.75" C. Overall height: 5.6" D. Height from base to top of knob: 4.91"
No vibration properties built in to this mount but it will handle your 1197 with out worries. It is built VERY Stout. The knobs tighten to hold as you want it set even in rough water and the base can be removed very quickly for inside storage of your sonar.
