  • Clean FishFinder/Transducer and Stake Out Pole Slayer Propel Install

    Started getting my new Slayer Propel rigged for the upcoming season. Purchased a Lowrance Elite-4 and Scupper Mount Transducer. Like a clean deck with minimal wires and hang-ups so this is what I came up with.

    Also thought I would send a picture of where I have my Stake Out Pole mounted. Fits nice, out of the way but easy to get to.

    Hi there, Nice shots. The attachment that you used to hold the transducer in place (can see it in the last shot) is it the Lowrance scupper mount? Did it work well, or did you have to modify it?
    And could you please post a shot of the underside showing the Transducer in place.
    Nice neat fit-out too, well done.

        I too would like to see an underside view....The new Mark 4 HDI has a new type of transducer and I am wondering if it is the same as yours and if it fits.

            Nice man. Are those special clips for the stakeout pole?

              Thanks, will get a picture from underneath for you. Yes I had to slightly modify the Lowrance scupper mount based on the transducer that came with the Elite-4. As far as the clips go, I got them from Get:Outdoors, matched my stake out pole size to the correct clip size. The fit was dead on, pole snaps in and out cleanly, no rattle on anything.

                Well I'm not quite sure what'a going on here, but the above pic shows the transducer (DSI) fitting nicely up into the scupper area.
                First my transducer is WAY different to that. Mine is 4.5" long tip to end and 2.25" wide.
                Mine is the latest Elite 7 HDI.
                For some reason I had this illusion that there would not be much difference.
                I have not fitted it yet, but if I am going to fit it thru there....

                  Does your transducer look like this.

                    Yes, sure does.
                    Is that the Lowrance scupper kit sitting there?
                    Modified at all?

                      Finally got some pictures of my transducer mounted using the Lowrance scupper kit.

                        Could you please take some pictures and give the dimensions of that PVC kayak cradle you made? I want to make one, but I am not sure how big the "squares" need to be to accomodate the width of the Slayer and keep it at a comfortable height off of the ground....

                        Thanks,

                          Thankyou for the pics.
                          Could somebody please explain to me how they secure the transducer into the front scupper of the Slayer propel.
                          After some of the reply's i received on here, I went out and bought the Lowrance scupper kit.
                          Mind you the info on the box did not say it was for the HDI sounders.
                          As I found out the wire may be thicker than the other versions of sounder, because it doesn't fit into the little space where the wire comes through the cap. Thats the first thing.
                          Removing the top bracket that is used when mounted on the back of a power boat and then applied the bracket that came with the kit and slides up the top surface of the transducer. The bracket doesn't slide all the way up the transducer, which makes it impossible to bracket lined up with the centre of the scupper hole.
                          And the Lowrance spider like bracket and foam ring are WAY too small for the size of the opening at the bottom of the scupper hole.
                          All your thoughts most welcome.
                          Thanks
                          Peter

                            Just purchased the Slayer Propel 13 Hidden Oak. You've gotten yours rigged out clean and nice. When you find a good paddle location and how to attach I please let us(me) know. thanks
