    I just got my hummingbird 997c today. I have a hole cut out in the console for a lowrance lcx 20c I plan on keeping it for just down sonar. I have an 1872 center console with a grab rail. I was considering getting a rail mountable RAM mount and installing it on the center of the grab rail. Does anyone see any problem with this? Any instalation tips that may be usefull would be much apreciated. Im going to buy an adjustable transducer bracket so I can raise and lower it B/C Ive heard people say to mount it lower than the instructions say

    I've noticed on my 797 that if the batteries get rattled, the unit shuts itself down.Also you may want to seal the square hole in the transducer to keep down the rooster tail.
