Default New Electronics on OT PDL

I have an Old Town Predator PDL that I am about to outfit with electronics. I see where there is a place for the transducer in the accomodating scupper. I understand this fits the Hummingbird model as Johnson Outdoors owns both Old Town and Hummingbird.
Since I am interested in side scan, I was wondering if anyone out there has experience with the transducer being too far up in the scupper to read without interference. Just by looking at the port it looks as though it would interfere. Maybe I'm mistaken?
I see where there is a place to install the transducer on the transom but that may expose it to harm when loading and unloading from my view.
Please give me your thoughts from experience.
