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.
Do these screws up hand tight and be careful not to over-tighten them.
Install the adapter thick adaptor plate to the base of the kayak using the existing screw. Do this by hand and make sure the screw is not bottoming out on the insert when tightening. If this does, replace it with a shorter screw.
Run the transducer cable through the transducer scupper.
Pull the excess cable through the hole from the top, and place the transducer on top of the adaptor with the cover.
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 it 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.
Job done so get on the beers! Yipaah!

Great products! I recently bought an Hobie Oasis. Where and how would you recommend me install a Triple shot or Garmin sideview transducer please
Bummer, my garminGt54uhd-tm transducer hole pattern does not line up with your adapter plate..do you have an updated adapter plate ? Purchased BP2631 from Meltintackle, Anaheim Ca
The install guide is not very helpful. The mount itself isn’t the best fit. It binds on the cords a little. Eventually got it figured out. Not too bad, could be a lot better though.
