I have an older Hummingbird sonar that I love. I have gone from framed pontoons (which where pretty easy to figure out) to the FRAMELESS models.
I have three different models that are all different diameter so I need something that will adapt.
I have the RAMP mount which is a little pricey, and I do feel this can be done without the Ram system, but here is what I came up with
Parts are the Ram sonar plate, the flush mount ram ball, and a 4" extension. Also 6' of 2" nylon strap with two adjusters and one quick clip male and female.
18" of 1" PVC, 2" Carriage bolt and a wing nut for easy finger tightening.
Lastly, a flexible but little thicker cutting board.

Here is the mobile version I now use:

I also use a small 12Volt rechargeable security battery to power it. Battery is about 4" x 3" X 2"

Several times. Trick is to put it on the tube while it is under inflated then tighten the straps then inflate tube.

It is very secure.

Very nice! A couple tabs of Velcro under it would make it even more secure.

Absolutely! The cutting board I used has a rubbery back so it won't slide on counters.

Great job! Perfect to switch from tube to tube.
