Thats what they recommend but if you take a look over the back at speed you may find you have clear water under both sides. My other boat (5.5m Haines signature has both transducers directly in front of the outboard, when the engine is trimmed in it almost touches them (fitted here because of trim tabs and live bait scoops burley pot and a dive ladder). My last boat had the transducer on the port side about 30cm from the centre and also worked fine.

Pah! it's a known fact that you'll never catch decent fish, if your transducer's on the wrong side

When I had the boat with it on the port side I drove the boat everywhere backwards so the transducer would be on the starboard side!!
