Hi Gilly I've got a Honwave T35 also.
I mounted my Garmin fishfinder to a metal plate which is screwed to the underside of the seat.
Transducer fixed to the transom with stainless screws which are sealed with sikaflex.

Hi
I built my own console for 150 with a front seat, battery compartment & a face for a chart plotter to be housed out of GRP,reason was nothing on the market to suit. You can buy seat bases from warrior boats with hatches for storage you can adapt for around 140,or have an aluminium one built options are endless.

Cheers

I'd recommend a combined fishfinder & gps with chart. I fished an area for years with just a fishfinder & local knowledge & thought I'd got it pretty much sussed. Then I tried a small gps with chart & it was something of a revelation!

here's a few pics of mine although i am doing a few mods to the bow as i found i wont need the amount of fuel as first thought having done the first sea trial. made an anchor system for the bow instead of the bucket housed under the spray deck and fitted where the fuel tanks were,also fitted docking arms.i will post in the sib section when i get her finished.

cheers

I'm a Huminbird man myself. But agree, a model which includes a GPS can't hurt. I use a compass (Fresh Water Lakes).
