    Can some of you guys that have the HDS structure scan system post pics of where your transducers are mounted!!! It sure would help a lot of us out!! I have read online jack plate, transom, step, etc... But a pic is worth 1000 words. Thanks in advance to anyone who posts to help us out!! I have a HDS 10 bundle that I'm going to install on my 07 901 cdx soon.

    Essentially I orders the parts from Transducer Saver and Shield and installed it myself. The key is to buy an L-bracket undrilled and drill to fit. Take your boat out and get a scum line on the gunnel. Then level the bracket so the LSS-2 sit horizontal to the bottom. Drill the holes in the bracket to match existing threaded holes that are normally for a step ladder.

    I don't really care for Transducer Saver and Shield of Wetumpka, AL. On one occasion the owner was quick to blame me for ordering wrong part (pre drilled L-bracket for a Slide Master) and wouldn't return it so I had to order another. Then they called me back later with their new product to mount an Elite Down Scan transducer. I installed it and it rubbed on the trolling motor prop. I called again and the guys said I ordered for the wrong trolling motor. He did offer to sell me as spacer kit and that said they would modify future models.

    Order carefully if you go with them.
