Minn Kota/Humminbird Transducer Mount

My brother and I installed a new Humminbird 898 on the console of boat. We removed the Hummin 565 that was on the consle and planned to move it to the bow. We removed the transducer from the back transom and wanted to mount it on the trolling motor, a Minn Kota Powerdrive V2.

The sliding shaft of the Powerdrive V2, makes it difficult to run the transducer cabling of the 565. I wanted to employ a coiled deployable hose that has the 565 ducer cable inside. That is impossible to do because of the large plug end of the transdducer cable. I was told that it is not a good idea to splice the cable. This would solve the prolem, but like I said after speaking with Humminbird, they said to not cut the transducer cable.


Hopefully some of you have figured out how to make this work. Pictures would be great. Thanks

I'd have to go out to the shed to take a couple pictures but all I did was zip-tie the cable to the bottom of the shaft right on top of the motor. Put a wire grommet big enough for the cable to slide thru on the side of the drive (used double sided tape to stick it on). Zip-tied it again at the top of the shaft. With the motor in the stored position just run your cable back behind your front panel, I put another grommet there so I could slide eccess cable in and out as needed. Always had mine that way and never have had a problem. I drilled a hole down thru the top when I mounted my swivel base so all my wires are hidden behind that front panel anyway.

Sorry it took so long to get the pics. Just got the boat out today. Nothing fancy but it does the job, keeps the cable out of the way anyhow.








Sorry about the picture sizes still trying to figure this part out. Hope this helps.
