So I finally installed the garmin fishfinder on my sportster. Didn't take very long to fish the transducer wire to the helm and even shorter to wire into my fuse box. I was really limited to where I can mount it so I just used your recommendation.

Mounting

Running wires through helm cover. I used protective mesh and sealed the hole with RTV (silicone)

I placed the transducer in the hull. I used a wire brush and alcohol to clean the surface first. I placed a thin layer of RTV it hold it in place

Unfortunately, I have not taking it out on the water yet to test the depth/fish finder. I am hoping I don't have to externally mount the transducer.

I use a suckon cup mount for transducer so you can get side views instead of only below boat views and angle is adjustable. Also has a small cork looking transducer you put on fishing line and can cast to areas you want to see . . . no wires and can even attach fishing line to bottom and see fish hit bait, etc. It's the green boat looking part below. I don't have the watch rather a large screen unit like normal ones.. I hate drilling holes in the hull. and you can remove it when not fishing and go fast, etc. It runs on D batterys so no electric issues.
