you might be able to search the threads, as i asked the same question and got a lot of good feedback. IIRC mitiempo's suggestions were the best for me. dont forget to offset depth for the keel... anyway, mine is a bit toward stern, but it is used more for fishfinding-then as a back up depth finder to my thru-hull unit.
anyway, i cleaned the figerglass.... set the transducer in a bag of water and kinda moved it around till i liked it. then, epoxed it to the hull in the right spot with sort of a twisting motion to make sure there were no bubbles. then got some PVC (IIRC 4"?) with a threaded end, got a cap for the end, drilled a small hole for the cable on the upper side of PVC... sanded the 'open' side of the pipe to fit hull, epoxyed that over the transducer, then you need to put some liquid in there... mineral spirits or something... im sure guys will give you suggestions.
oh, one thing mitiempo also pointed out (a bit diff. for me for the fish finding use mentioned above), the closer to the bow you put it, the more 'infront' of you you will be seeing, handy if you are using it to prevent grounding.
oh, i have a hummingbird and like it a lot.
