Default Transducer location?

What do you guys think is the best way to mount a transducer? I bought myself a new fish finder yesterday to replace the old piece of junk on my boat. The instructions say to either mount on the transom or in the bottom of the hull. I'm thinkin the current transducer is mounted somewhere in my hull since I've never seen it outside the hull. I have a Bayliner Capri. Seems like the shoot through method in the hull might be a pain to install but I like the idea of the transducer not being outside the boat and possible getting knocked around.
What are your opinions??

The transom is convenient and makes the transducer easy to replace when necessary. It also leaves it exposed to potential damage, but I think that's a minor risk.

It seems lots of bass guys put one on the electric trolling motor for use up front, but obviously that only works when the trolling motor is in the water.

I agree 100% with you. Whatever you decide to do, make sure the transducer cable doesn't get kinked or pinched - that really screws things up.

A through the hull is easy to install on fiberglass and you dont have to drill anything.

Mine is on the hull. Works great, just make sure you follow the directions and put it in the right spot so you don't get interference.

I've been thinking about getting a 2nd transducer and putting that on one of those temporary rigs that you can just move around and put where you want. You might look into that I know bass pro has them, it's basically just a pole with a clamp place at the bottom for the transducer and a clamp near the top to clamp somewhere to your boat.
