    I think its awesome the the Old Town Predator comes ready with a recessed are for a Humminbird sonar.  I am a Humminbird fan and this was a point which swayed me toward the Predator kayak.  I decided to use a Humminbird 788 DI unit.  However the Humminbird transducer mount I’m told would work with the down imaging products.

    This dilemma forced me to make my own mount using a few pieces of 1″ PVC.

    Simply notch the 1″ PVC to allow the transducer to insert into pipe, drill and install a 1/4″ bolt.  It was real easy.  It took a few times getting the length just right when mounting into the scupper hole.  As you can see I used another threaded section to hold it in tight.  No glue was used.

    I also wrapped some electrical tape to make for a slightly tighter fit.
