Firstly a massive thanks to Alex Whitehead and Paul Malov, we seem to have been able to pull off an interstate project in just over a week and ready for on the water testing! The total scan transducer bolts up to the existing location and uses the two plastic mounts we have come up with.

The new cover sits over the top of the transducer to save it from wear and tear.

The cover sits just under the sides of the hull on a Pro Angler and as Alex found out it fits nicely on the trailer.

Alex was first on the water this morning and sent this screen shot of the side scan in action.

He originally had his transducer glued through hull and was not happy with the image I woke up to a very excited message from him this morning… “That transducer mount is awesome! Bolted straight up really quickly and its providing the same crisp image as when I had it hanging over the rear of the kayak but now with no hassle!”.

Check out this mulloway he landed this morning also to top it off.

Thanks heaps for your help and the images Alex! Tomorrow morning I am catching up with Paul to see how his works we fitted up earlier in the week.

Here’s some more screenshots to bust the myths of loss of clarity using the Totalscan Mount

    Does it let in enough water for the temp to read correctly? Any issue with sand or mud getting lodged under the cover?

      Hi, it has 2 drain holes in the cover and a large hole at the rear for water to pass out. It gives a good temperature reading also. We haven’t had any issues yet in regards to sand getting stuck.

    Hi Marylyn,

    Great idea. Am also keenly awaiting to install my 3D transducer this method once your product is out. Any time estimates?

    Hi Marylyn.

    I’m ready to purchase this product for the 3d structure scan for my Hobie T17. I don’t see it on your website yet. Is it available to order?

    Thanks so much.

    Hey Marylyn.

    One more question. Do the cables for the 3-d transducer fit through the existing through hull fittings for the Hobie lowrance ready feature or does it require drilling additional holes?

    Thanks again.

    Hey guys I have a question. I am looking for a good transducer mount for my kayak. My kayak is an ascend Fs12t and I have been debating about setting it up in my scupper or from my rod holder. My issue is, is that I have a pretty long transducer and everything that I have looked at seems to have the smaller transducer. Do you have a product that will work with my garmin echomap chirp 44dv transducer for the model kayak that I have?

      Hi Shawn

      Sorry I haven’t seen that model or how to mount them. Is there a location for them? You could adapt a lowrance scupper mount to fit that maybe?
