Transducer Mounting Plate
This plate works perfectly if you have multiple transducers to mount, especially on an aluminum boat. If you have a side imaging transducer, its almost a must. I had to move my SI transducer a couple of inches 3-4 times to find just the right spot with the clearest view. Kept me from having to put multiple holes in my boat. Installation was a breeze, I attached it with silicon epoxy, used the 2 screws it came with for added strength, then sealed around it completely with silicon. It doesn't budge, looks good, and gives me the flexibility to move my transducers without worrying about drilling more holes in the hull.

Great product. Easy to cut to custom fit. Instead of using screws I glued it on using 3M 5200 adhesive. Recommended!

Drill holes in this plate instead of your boat.
Transducer hole patterns are not all identical or even the same size. Do you really want to drill more holes in your boat just because your sonar unit crapped out and you needed to replace it? If you stay with the same brand sonar unit you might have a shot at it but who does that in a constantly changing world. Get this little gem, mount it to your boat, and change transducers like you change underwear, wives, and girlfriends. You won't have to drill more mounting holes in your boat for equipment changes or electronic upgrades. These are also great for mounting depth finders on dashboards too. Make sure you use stainless steel screws and marine grade sealant in the screw holes and behind the plate to protect your boat from water damage.

I like it!
This plate is perfect for what I needed. I mounted my transducer to it so far, and it works great. Now I have plenty of room to mount other things if I want to without drilling more holes in my transom. I intended to mount the plate with glue as suggested in previous comments instead of drilling into my aluminum boat, but that did not work for me. The plate is perfectly flat, but I guess the transom of my boat is not. It would have taken a lot of glue. So I mounted it by following the directions and drilling two small holes, using liberal amounts of silicone sealant on the screws. Then I ran a bead all around the edge of the plate and sealed it completely. Works great. Looks great. No leaks at all. It was definitely worth the price, and worth drilling two small holes in my boat.
