I bought a Garmin Striker 5cv 5" fish finder to mount to my prowler 4.3 . The transducer is 150mm long and fits but the mounting bracket doesn't, so had to fabricate a left and right hand bracket from aluminium.

With aluminium it pays to isolate it from the stainless steel fittings when around saltwater. Galvanic(?) Corrosion otherwise.
I had to bodge a mount for the same transducer in my Jackson Kraken too.
