think about where the battery is going to go - can be a real pain (mine sits inside the kayak, and it's not easy to get to so will be relocating soon).
Good luck!

sikaflex works well. clean the yak with white spirit first then a light abrasion with wetndry or light sand paper to make a good key.

make sure you get it far enough aft that it wont be too affected by air bubbles under the yak.

good luck.

You can fix the transducer inside the hull with silicon seeler. Rough the spot up with sand paper first, take the nozzle off the seeler and make one big blob on the transducer (you get less air pockets that way). Make a temporary wooden post to press it down as hard as your can, remove after about 36 hours.
