I'm installing a new fishfinder into my kayak. Any advice on whether to install transducer inside hull (selleys all clear) or mount on outside with transducer arm? I don't have scupper hole that can fit a transducer recessed under hull - thanks

There are heaps of threads on here about this question, pretty much the #1 solution, if you can't use a scupper mount, is to shoot the signal thru the hull, rather than have an arm with a FF attached.
I did a similar shoot thru install a while back, have a read of this post.

However a quick hunt around the site will have other setups for other kayak brands etc

I agree that’s a very hassle free solution. I used a scupper hole mount on ma first yak,

I have got a spare one on me, here’s the photos, let me know if u keen.
