DIY – Low cost transducer mount on Jackson Cuda 12

After a couple months of research I finally decided to drill holes into the ole Jackson Cuda 12. This was a very hard thing for me to do, but I think it is going to work out.

I wanted a transducer mount that was cheap, easily removed, low drag, and would break away should I hit a stump or get it hung on something. I think I accomplished all of this for $15 bucks.

All of these parts were bought at Lowes hardware store. Here is a list of all the parts and a few pictures.
