Default sailfish 218 transome mounting

Ok I have a brand new p66 to try and mount on this boat, the manufacturer said to mount it in the middle of the transome that has the 22 degree dead rise, It keept loosing bottom after 25 mph unless the trim tabs are down, so do I move it towards the trim tab or away, if I move it away from the tab it gets really close to the lip in the hull were it goes from 22 to 24 degree deadrise, I triid going up and down with the trans but that didnt do too much. thanks

Default RE: sailfish 218 transome mounting

When mounting transducers I found that they worked best about halfway between the keel(center) and the tab. If the hull has lifting strakes as most do, I mount them between the lifting strakes. Mounting yours in the middle is just like mounting it behind a strake where water is alway agitated and you lose your signal. MOunting it in the center would work if you mounted it through the hull and if you had a flat pad at the read of the keel as some boats do. Hope this helps.

when I said middle I meant on the starboard side in the middle of the part of the hull that has a 22 degree dead rise, this hull is like having three different hulls, from the chines it goes to a dead rise im not sure of the angle, then a step down to a 22 degree then another step down to a 24 degree, so the trans is on a smooth part of the 22 degree, nothing in front of it hope that makes sence
