It may be that the 1.5" size I used is insufficient for the Helix 10 because no matter how hard I crank on the mount I can't keep it from sagging when on rough water. I'm guessing I could upgrade to the 2.25" ram arm and maybe spend the $$ on their auxiliary wrench for that size but as long as I'm spending money, I want to consider Cisco, Balz-Out, RAM swing mount, etc. Any Impact owners out there that can comment on the windshield clearance and fit of the Helix 10 when using those other bases?

Thanks in advance!
Maybe this will work for you. Suggest you look at the Precision Sonar multi-use bracket. Check it out on the Products page.

I use the RAM 109 Swing Arms for my Helix 12 DI & 1199, the 1.5" ball is only good for much smaller units IMO.

I have a Helix 12SI on the passenger console on a RAM 111 w/2.25" ball and it worked OK for my 998/999'a but it needed to be supported with some aluminum angle to have the H12SI ride on it.

Randy (PSonar) has some good mounts available, but I am unsure if you have a flat/level spot to mount to from your pics posted, you might want to contact him.

The RAM 109 Swing Arm was the best for me due to the prices I paid & I know they'd handle the 1199 with no issue and it works just as well for the Helix 12.

G'Luck with your quest!

Please explain how this product is any different than using the factory supplied gimbal for surface application. Also to the O.P: I use a Ram "D" size (2.25") on the bow for a 800 series Humminbird and with the ram-wrench it holds fine, without its use however, it can sag in rough water. At the helm I use a Cisco mount, although for another 800 series FF not the big Helix. The Cisco positively locks and will not sag. Also with the Cisco the Graph can be extended beyond (towards the aft) so even a 12" graph should clear the windshield. A call to Cisco @ 216-881-4507 should answer any question about mounting your particular graph.

Nothing special, but these two pictures make my heart go pitypat! Somewhere in Ontario.

When mounting a structurescan side imaging trausducer to a Ranger boat with step transom, I made a L-shaped bracket and bolted it to the underside of the step transom. Then bolted the LSS transducer bracket to the L bracket. This allowed me to drop the LSS transducer out of the pocket that is formed by the down angled walls to both sides of the step transom, and within 1' of my skimmer transducer. Its also away from any turbulence from props.
