Sticky Note for Transducers

Here is my solution to not welding or drilling when mounting a transducer to the stern cap of a toon log. Polycarbonate block bonded to log with JB Weld. Have run over quite a few logs and stumps, and so far, so good. Transducer has kick-up feature built into the mount, and was easy to snap back into position when "tested" with a cypress knee. Positioned block so that transducer is 1/2 inch below log. Keel extrusion that runs length of log protects transducer, as it is starboard by about 4 inches, and runs about 1 inch deeper than log. 

Been almost a year now, and I'm questioning myself about the name of the material. Got it at a plastic sheet distributor. Polycarbonate may or may not be accurate, but your plastic supplier will be able to advise as to the type of plastic that will bond with JB Weld. 

Transducer is mounted to the block with stainless screws. Used small wood block to slightly flatten area of log. and used scribe to crosshatch aluminum for good bonding surface. Packaging tape held the assembly in place until properly cured.

Shade tree redneck engineering.
