    Got the portable striker 4 recently and found the suction cup was subpar for how I wanted to use it. Any recommendations for products that make it functional in a rental skiff and/or kayak? Also, would duct seal on the hull would work for the striker 4 transducer? Nothing permanent.

    I've seen a very friendly functional transducer bracket fashioned from PVC pipe with a 4" bolt at the rail to keep it in place. Just clamp it on the skiff and you're in business

    Silicone or ultrasound gel . The transducer should work right through the hull if solid and relatively thin . Wont work through a honeycomb core though . Just stick it to a flat spot on the bottom . If that isn't satisfactory a C clamp / pipe braket for the transom . Good luck ! Wr
