This is how to install a BerleyPro Sidescan transducer mount on your Hobie® Passport or Lynx. All you will need is a Phillips head screwdriver and the mounting screws that come with your Garmin or Lowrance side scan transducer.

 

 

Firstly, you need to thread the transducer cable through the adaptor plate as shown. Then install the 4 mounting screws that come with the Garmin or Lowrance Transducer, into the adapter plate. The Lowrance transducer plate is shown in this tutorial.

Install the longer rear screw provided into the rear of the transducer cover. Do this up by hand and ensure it doesn’t bottom out on the base of the insert. If it does, replace with a shorter screw.

 

 

Install the two 8/32 x 3/8 screws into the brass inserts as shown. Do this up so it just grabs the plastic so it can move if hit and not damage the cover.
