Transducer Bracket

Can anyone help me with pointing me in the direction of a new transducer braket? i have an avon 560 with yamaha controls, engine etc, they appear to still be working but the bracket securing the transducer broke at the weekend leaving the transducer hanging by its cable, hopefully i can locate a new bracket

Was it the bracket that broke, or the transducer itself?

I snapped a Lowrance transducer when I hit a piece of flotsam at about 30 mph; the bracket remained intact, but the plastic "L" between the mounting bolt and the transducer head broke. Some SS wire and a bit of epoxy later, and things are working again (albeit with a serious hit to appearance.)

The plastic 'L' has disappeared, the bracket is part broke and the transducer is hanging on it's wire, all looking a bit of a mess! I guess I may have to 'bodge' something up

If boat has a drainwell then stick it in there with a thin layer of clear silicon. It'll work fine sounding thru the fibreglass providing you dont get bubbles in the silicon and you wont snap it off again. If you want to check that it will actually work beforehand put some water in the well and prop the transducer up in there and take it for a boat trip
