    Default Berkley Pro transducer mount for Hummingbird side imaging for Hobies

    I modified my Lowrance ready transducer mount on my 2016 Outback to mount my Hummingbird 798CI-DI DSI Combo transducer...it works pretty well, but the side scans are not great...so along comes a drop-in, after-market, made exclusively to fit the side scan Hummingbird transducers in the Hobie Lowrance ready mounts...a little pricey at $59.00 but it advertises to give you the best pictures the unit is capable of...so mine is shipped and should arrive by next Tuesday...

    Berley Pro has made several high quality accessories for kayaks. I recently purchased a new rudder for my Native Slayer Propel 10 from them. I definitely experienced sticker shock when I made the purchase, but after using it twice on the water, including in rough water yesterday, it is worth the money. I hope your transducer mount meets your expectations too.

    I ordered the same from Mariner-Sails, shipping confirmation received today, excited to get this mounted. I like the peace-of-mind of the extra protection on/under/around the transducer when unloading from my pickup, and launching from anything other than a soft sandy beach.

    Yes indeed! The same place I ordered mine from- They are very fast filling the order and getting it out the door- Mine is scheduled for delivery sometime tomorrow...looking forward to those clear side scans...

    Just finished installing the Berkley Pro transducer cover- it is a pretty simple swap- uses two abs plastic clamps that secures the transducer up against the top of the dome cover so that the side scan portion of the transducer is above the hull...the cover looks sturdy enough to be a good long term solution...and since I use a scupper cart to launch and retrieve it should never be an issue
