    Like another forum member said about shoot through setups, I am not a fan, especially for the newer DSI models.

    The PA has that great rear bar which I think just begs for a mount for a transducer. I can envision running the cables through the hull, the bar, and out underneath where the mount would be placed like ghost cables on a motorcycle. I would probably place it off center against where the chrome bar meets the corner so that the handle is still available for use for lifting it.

    Just a thought.

    Here's what I did. It's nice to have the bar there to protect it when loading and unloading.

    It folds up to be protected for transporting.

    I used two 1" Screwballs and a double socket ball arm.

    In this picture you can see how the MightyBolt secures the transducer bracket.

    When there is nobody sitting in the kayak the transducer is out of the water. When I sit in the kayak @240lbs it is completely submerged. If you wanted it to stay in the water all the time a longer ball socket could be used.
