Default Clean transom transducer mount... How did you do it?

Transom mount transducers are ugly! The transducer itself is not that bad but that black wire running on a white transom is like an ugly scar on a pretty woman. I will be mounting a sidescan transom mount transducer (GT51) on a new boat with twin outboards. I have been amazed by THTers craft and ingenuity. I would love to see creative solutions (with pictures please) of what you did to disguise and make that ugly wire less conspicuous. Not having to drill a hole through the transom would be a plus. Please feel free to showcase your mastery and creativity or just your suggestions....

I routed a GT51tm on my old boat as you described using 3m adhesive-plastic cable clamps. They worked great but as you said, it's impossible to make it look good. My new boat has a GT transducer with cable routed through hole using a clam shell + 4200 and 4200 sealing the hole from inside. No issue and looks decent. I will be removing it and putting a different transducer there and will follow the same procedure.

tried to upload pics but it's not working
