Your boat, you like it.......... but it looks cheap after all that nice work. Whatever.........

I can understand you being reluctant to drill holes. On my boat prior owners just drilled away and filled the old holes with pop rivets. I drilled the rivets out, and filled in with JB Weld. I had some composite material laying around, cut to fit, then drilled holes, I used 3M 5200 SLOW CURE, liberally on the back side...NO LEAKS. I can now mount whatever on the back now. Maybe some thought on using 3M 5200 Fast Cure to make some composite material stay affixed to your hull without drilling.

Another option is to mount the transducer board vertically, with the mounting bolts above the waterline, within the splashwell.

BassPro Shops, Cabelas, West Marine sells it. I just used some stuff I had picked up in my travels. I think in your case HRG's set up would look really nice.
