With the Honwaves, where do you attach a transom mount for a fish finder transducer
Ive wondered about this for a while now, would a through hull transducer not be better.?

Here is a grainy picture of my honwave aluminium floored 3.5m sib taken standing behind the transom.
These sibs come with one seat but there is two mounting points for the seat. Mines is mounted in the position nearest the bow.
I sit on the right hand side tube and steer left handed with the tiller.
The transducer is mounted near the waterline on the right.
Follow the cable near the launch wheel bracket.
The garmin colour display is mounted to a steel plate which is screwed onto the underside of the seat.
A simple and effective set up.

A bombard 380 is hard to beat. Put a thick rubber / plastic mat down to protect the air floor from hooks / bass spines and it would be a great little boat for fishing. Ali floor is great, but really starts to straddle the line between SIB and RIB in terms of convenience and storage. If you can't keep it on a trailer, you'll eventually get fed up with it unless you have the patience of a saint

It's the transoms with the tabs that people are having trouble with.
