    Default Bow mounted fishfinder installation

    Does anyone have any experience with installing a bow mounted trolling motor? I have the transducer installed on the bottom of the trolling motor, I have power in the bow of the boat for the fish finder, but am unsure how to run my transducer cable because of the way the trolling motor slides when it is being deployed. I wanted to see how other people have done it before I start drilling holes and installing cable clamps on the motor and motor mount.

    I just put a zip tie bellow the shaft lock on the bottom and one above the upper stop guide. Just left the cable loose in the middle never had any problems with cable drag in the water.

    I have the same motor.. but I bought a transducer to fit the trolling motor. All you can do is secure it near the foot, and then again above the stop collar.
