My two cents is closer to the Keel the better you have less movement up-and-down. The farther outboard it is the more the hull rises and lowers with the rocking action, that seems to be an issue with a higher resolution down Scan and side scan. Also I would think you would want it down below the trim tab to make sure that it doesn't cast a shadow IMHO. I mounted mine in what you have numbered as position number three and it works very well for me.

What about option three on the opposite side? It's only use at slow speed trolling speed so I don't think water disturbance will be a problem.
