Trim Tabs and Transducers

I am fitting some trim tabs to Time Bandit and am trying to work out the best solution for the Sounder Transducer that currently hangs off the transom.

Options are:

1 - Move the transduce down to the next chine,however I am concerned this will be too close the centre and may cause problems with ventilation.

2 - Move the transducer halfway between the chines however it will be on the engle of the hull.

3 - Drill a big hole in the deck and epoxy or silicone the sounder to the hull in a shoot-thru installation.

Although option 3 is one that I would prefer it does involve a lot of work and ultimately I may loose some signal quality. So at the moment I am looking at option 2.

Any thoughts and does anyone have a transduce mounted on the bottom chine, if so any issues with loss of grip from the prop?
