    I used to hang mine on the same side as my sounder then you could send it back to the same depth every time you caught a fish as it showed up as a thin line on the screen.

    I 've mounted two scotty depth masters on a 435 tinny, and have them mounted port and starboard half way along the gunnel. Running a 20% transducer beam they appear at about 13ft depth on the sounder, and disappear at about 60ft due to swing back of the bomb, can be overcome though by manually changing transducer angle.

    Have found having them mounted forward enables you to watch sounder screen and rod tip at same time.
