Default help with transducer mount location

need advice on where to mount transducer for my hds 7. i drew 4 squares on the pic with #'s......The transducer in the pic will remain ( its my humminbird FF).....also please tell me if it would make sense to glue (using 4200) a small piece of starboard behind the transducer mount and the screw into that instead of the transom? Thanks for the help / advice.

I would use the spot where #1 meets #2.

Also use the Stern Saver product..no holes..no screws.

This is what I did on my Robalo, using a piece of 1/2" StarBoard, stainless screws, and some 3M 4000.

yeah but if your gonna drill thru the starboard into the transom doesn't it defeat the purpose of even using the starboard piece? just drill the bracket straight into the transom...or am i missing something?

You are right. No holes is the goal!
