Default Ideas for mounting a transducer with the boat in the water

My boat has an old Lowrance fishfinder that I am removing and replacing with a Garmin combo unit. Obviously I am unable to drill below the waterline to mount the transducer. Are there any tricks for installing without pulling the boat out of the water?

I did that with mine.
Position the boat carefuly and in a way that makes your work easier.

I was thinking about that, but wanted someone else to suggest it. Calm day, head out at high tide, works for me.

Actually even better than the 5200 fast cure would be Marine Tex's Flex Set, it is actually designed so it can be applied in/under water. But I would use 4200 Fast Cure before any of them if you can wait long enough....more than likely the tide will be quicker than the dry time for the 4200. The Flex Set will be the best option if you have to use the sandbar and if you can add some heat to it, it will speed up the cure time.
