I've seen some question on where/how to mount a transducer on a 19+ 190 since it is not standard with the boat. Here is a picture of my installation. Not perfect by anymeans, but tt was relatively simple with no holes below the waterline. I used a stern pad which sticks on the boat and attached the transducer to it. It stands out more in the picture because of the flash. The transducer works at 35+ mph well.

I also installed the new Cobra Fins especially for the 19+ reverse bucket. They perform better than last years fins in reverse because of the curve edge allows better sideways thrust from the new bucket. I installed them in the center holes to maximize the reverse control while still getting good slow speed forward control. I havent use JBP fins so I can't speak to a comparison.

I think it looks great :winkingthumbsup" . If you start loosing the bottom at speed you may want to try and lower the transducer further. I wish I could bring myself to drill a hole in the hull to mount mine but I just can't... :nailbiting:

I didn't trust myself for in hull. I was close to the thru hull, but I came back to what I've done before.

How’s this working for you? Has it stayed on? What did you use to mount it to under the bracket? Also how does it work with side view? Thx

It works great at any speed for depth finding. I haven't used it for fishing so I can't attest to side view. I used a stern mounting pad and screw into the mounting pad. Amazon.com: Stern Pad - Standard Size - Black - Screwless Transducer/Acc. Mounting Kit (not for Large 3D Scan Transducers): Car Electronics
Nice! I ordered a Hummingbird Helix 7 from a place and got a deal on it. Thought it might help when trying to navigate all the sandbars etc out on the NC coastline. Seems like it might do well mounted there. Thx again.
