The Lowrance Scupper Transducer mount did not fit well in the transducer well of my new T-15. I wanted to use my Mark 4 with GPS, so I began to modify. I started by modifying the Scupper mount. I figured I would start with the cheapest part, right?   

I cut off the mounting bracket and filed it flat:

 Then I used scissors and cut the hard rubber disc to fit flat on the transducer:

Then the scary part. I cut the mounting arm off the transducer and filed back as far as I felt comfortable. I found a sharp blade did the best job job shaping the hard plastic:

lowrancenstallc

I gooped the hard bracket and disc to the transducer and let it set level overnight:

The transducer now sits fully within the well:

Rest of the install went by the book. I like the look of the Hobie thru-hull:

 I used rivets and a bit of goop for the mounting bracket:

 And the finder folds down flat to allow the shield to close with FF in place:
