I have a 1988 211. I'm wanting to install a B150 tranducer to connect to my Garmin 741xs. Does anyone have experience with or know which "tilt" to get and exactly where to mount it at the rear of the boat.

In my 1992 211 I used a 20 degree B60.
Don't know if there was any deadrise change between 1988 and 1992.

Mounted it 16" forward of the stern on the Starboard side.(pretty much opposite from the bilge pump plate)
My boat lives on a trailer, so I split the difference between the keel and the trailer rollers.

Thank you. I too was looking at where the trailer rollers were touching and trying to ensure that I miss them. How does work when underway or at cruising speed?

We primarily boat on Lake Erie, so usually don't find water much over 80 feet deep...our Lowrance HDS-8 holds a good bottom lock at full speed (38 MPH).

Trolling at 2-3 MPH, it has great resolution and marks fish very well.

If I can get through the snow to the boat, I will snap a few pics from underneath so you can see the transducer location.

Sorry, I misguided you...I typed Starboard side and should have typed Port!
