must transducer be on starboard side?

I have one main 175hp engine w/ a standard right hand propeller the transducer is mounted on the starboard side just inside the trim tab.

I've been wanting to add a 10HP kicker engine it would be much easier to rig on the starboard side however I don't want it interfering w/ the transducer.

could the transducer be relocated to the port side?this would require extending the cable

RE: [CA11] must transducer be on startboard side?
Welcome to the Raymarine Forum mugwump4,

Please click here to view a FAQ addressing this subject. For single outboard / single I/O applications, the transducer should be installed on the starboard side of the transom. As noted therein, lowering the aft end of the transducer a notch or two can also improve performance at speeds nearing plane and while on plane. Shifting the transducer to the port side of the hull may cause the transducer to experience turbulence associated with back pressure from the right hand rotating propeller, thereby adversely affecting sonar performance.
