Default Fish Finder Installation

I bought my first bass boat in June of 2012, it is a 1994 Astro FSX with a 225 HP carbed Mercury. I recently bought a Humminbird 997c Si over the winter. I am looking to pull my boat out of storage and installing this fish finder here shortly before the weather changes and its time to be on the lake. I have never installed one of these transducers or units and am jus looking for every bit of advice I can get prior to starting the project. I am an electrican/HVAC technicain so I feel like I shouldn't have too much trouble but I realize there are easier, better, and correct ways of doing things so all advice is greatly appreciated. I have heard of mounting a PVC board to the back of my boat for my transducer incase of the transducer catching on something and/or stripping screws out of the PVC board rather than causing damge to the boat itself. Does this sound like a good idea? Also I am debating on mounting the unit at the drivers seat or at the front fishing seat to see during trolling motor operation. If you guys could give me any advice that would be helpful, that would be great! Thanks!

A friend of mine installed a transducer with the Sternsaver system and it looks like a great alternative to using screws through the transom.
Good luck.
