In my Adventure I have always installed mine in front of the pedals and mast base shooting through the hull embedded in a foam former containing a bed of household silicone sealant. Access for the installation via the forward hatch. Works fine. Eagle Cuda/Lowrance sMap 250/350 GPS FF Combo.

Thanks! That's the location I thought was good, but had an individual who wasn't sure because of possible cavitational problems. If your use of this area has been successful then I feel confident with it also. Thanks again.

bar44,
if it is in a Hobie AI or TI and you are sailing fast, then you do get a little bit of drop out from air going under the hull when the transducer is further forward.
But as soon as you slow down to fishing speed, it is fine.
