I'm looking for a fish finder/GPS but not sure of the pro's/con's of the different types of transducer mounts. Would appreciate any guidance.

Also any recommendations on a decent model (can't afford top of the line) unit?

Thanks for any advice.

Are you putting this on the P13? I use thru hull when using lower end finders. I am currently rigging my new T160 and have decided to go through the scupper. I made that decision because I can have the transducer flush inside the channel. I'll probably post pics when I am done.

I would use the built in transducer scupper. IF you go with humminbird and get it know you can ask humminbird to send you the scupper compatible one . or you can do something like in these pics. I bought my FF used so i did something similar to this.

Took your advice and mounting tips, ordered the Lowrance Elite 4. Did a lot more reading as well and seems there's no loss of signal mounting a transom mount transducer as a thru hull using Goop and no air bubbles. Thanks for the help oxbeast!

I have a lowrance mark 4 ff/gps combo on my tarpon... I mounted through the hull with duct seal. Worrks great!
THIS!!
Duct seal is easy to remove/relocate and is far more easy to remove air bubbles from, well it doesn't really have any to begin with. Just make a 2"-3" pancake about 1/2" think where you want the transducer to be and just shove it down into it. You can pick it up at Lowes or Home Depot for under $3 in the electrical section.
