Yup.. I do ..the photo explains better than I can in words. I have a few boats and only one fishfinder..so I made the attachments for each boat..including my inflatables. Its made from left over "Plastic" used from making windowsills and the likes. Available from any decent DIY store.
The transducer is mounted onto a "tougue" piece which just slots into the attachements on each boat.. if that makes sense. You can make it far smaller if you wish but I wanted to be able to slide mine up and down without getting my hand wet. At full down..the transducer is in the correct position just below the transoms.
Some "experts" will tell you to mount it on the opposite side to avoid prop disturbance. This may or may not be true..however Im no expert. I have used this set up for a number of years and I get no prop interference at displacement speeds. Perhaps doing 25 knots or so might make a difference.. but when I go that fast..im not interested in finding fish
