    I assume you want to install a transducer for a sonar unit.  Did you have a preference on the type of transducer you were thinking of using;  transom mount vs. in-hull (the type that sonny55 describes) vs. through hull?

    If you're asking where to mount the transducer on the transom, I've attached the transducer installation page from my unit for you to look at.
