Lay a straight edge along the bottom of the hull to get an idea of where the water flow will cross the the transducer. I run mine just deep enough to get a signal at speed without throwing any rooster tail. Good place to start then tweak it on the water.

Besides height of the 'ducer, pitch forward and aft can make a big difference. Keep in mind that the overall angle of the boat changes on plane. Getting that right is usually the hardest part for me.

Nice job of mounting. That stringer might be a problem?
