No pics as I'm at work and the boat is at home, but my transducer is mounted a bit higher than Sonar's appears to be (might be the angle the pic was taken at - not sure.) The horizontal midline of the transducer pod sits even with the bottom of the hull on the lower side (the deadrise means the horizontal transducer face is mounted on an angled line. The centerline of the ducer is basicaly clear of the bottom of the hull when looking from the back.)

Just at this moment I'am doing the same thing.
Put the transducer on a piece of wood with two screws and fix that to the transom with an 'adhesive grip' the one you use to hold glued wood together.
Go out on the water and give it a try, now you can change the position untill you're satisfied.
It should be on starboard, at least 7,5 cm away from the outside of the prop, and 3 mm sticking out of the bottom. Be shure it's not in the way when trailering.

Yeah, not long at all when you hit pieces of lumber at about 35mph...

Don't ask how I know.
