Let me know when you figure it out, I have the same problem on my Starcraft. Once I go on a plane the whole screen is covered with interference. At low speed it is great but the transom rivets seem to produce large amounts of flow noise.

I don't have the rivets as a concern however I tried two different heights with the same results. I did locate at the same location there was a previous transducer but still no luck.

Do you have it mounted on the Starboard (driver) side at least 13-15 from the edge of the prop?

I am sure my issue is the rivets in the hull, I followed Humminbird's installation instructions to the letter.

The flow noise goes away completely at lower speeds so the graph is usable. I don't know of any graph that will mark fish at speed (30 mph) but at trolling/drifting speeds it works great so I am happy.

Post a picture of your xducer installation.. How are you able to tell that it is turblence interference and not electrical noise form some other component.. Your 1750 hull shouldnt give you any turbulance issues..

I do not get the interference at slow speeds and I also had the motor in neutral and revved the engine with no apparent problems. I have not been home or on the water for awhile so when I am able I will adjust again and update.

I will lower and try it.

My question is: why does water spew up from my transducer running in the water? Do I need to raise it? Will this ruin my reception? Thanks
