    end results turned out pretty good. I like having the 12V outlet. It gives me the ability for more options such as a lighting system for gigging and a live well. I may eventually move the fishfinder to the center position after a few more outings.

    Very nice. I just got one so I can move mine between my Cuda and Big Tuna. Did you use a cigarette lighter plug or a trolling motor plug?

    Cigarette lighter plug. I used the Marinco 12V. Seemed to be the best quality for boats.

    I duplicated the setup in the picture with Ram Arm on greartrac screwball this spring, not satisfied with performance. Drag on Arm is excessive, when exceed 2 MPH, it shakes back and forth and slowly moves from verticals position to horizontal, not good for transducer readings. Probably will give up and back inside hull. Anyone have better success? any suggestions to improve setup?
    Thanks

    It will swing but I normally swing it up anyways when paddling fast or farther distances. Did you shorten the metal rod a little so there is less pole in the water?

    CT I just bought one of these arms from Yak Attack. Did yours come with an iron rod? If so what is the rod used for?

    The iron rod is meant to go through the transducer arm. You will have to bend it to whatever bends you want for your kayak.
