Mounting for the Baseplate can be done in several different ways.
If mounting on a Hobie tube (Hrail), the square and round tube clamp work very well.
If you have a track system that uses T nuts, then select the sub plate with T nuts.
And finally if you have a flat spot and wish to just mount directly to the kayak, the sub plate works best.
These mountings allow for the baseplate to be quickly removed using 2 thumbscrews.
If you intend to use a Ram Ball set to mount the baseplate, you need no mounting at all and can just secure the Ram Ball to the bottom of the baseplate directly. So do not select a mounting below.
The baseplate is the part that holds the downrod. It is attached to the mounting above.
Most common is an 8 inch baseplate. Consider the drawing below when selecting a baseplate:
Sub plate mountings are 4 inches. Allow sufficient span to get the downrod out over the water.
Downrods support all scanning sonars.
Choose 24 inch or 36 depending on how you fish. If you fish standing you may want more height on the downrod to bring the handle into a more comfortable position.
- Downrod end supports specific Transducers as shown below.
- Downrod End Garmin Livescope supports LVS32 transducer in Forward and Down views.
- Multi View downrod end supports Garmin and Lowrance Forward, Down and Scout/Perspective views. This system offers a lower water resistance profile than the OEM brackets shipped with the transducers.
- Downrod Post End should be selected for use with the Humminbird Mega LIVE transducer
