The Garmin GT52 & CV52 ready transducer mount is designed to fit in the existing Lowrance ready location on the base of Hobie kayaks. These mount and cover the GT52 & CV52 transducer which comes with the Garmin Striker range providing protection and also maintaining a crisp image with the side vu. Side imaging requires the transducer to sit lower than the sides of the hull to not interfere with the image. The image above shows a transducer mount sitting on a PA14 and you can see the height of the transducer sits approx. the same height as the twin hull section at the rear. This extends below the hull on other Hobie models.
The mount and cover for the Garmin™ Side Vu fits the GT52 & CV52 transducer which provides protection and maintains a crisp image for structure scan. The ABS plastic is designed to protect the transducer from scratching and damage for normal kayak use. This however is still only a plastic mount placed at the base of the kayak so care must always be taken.
