Default Transom degree/angle

I am trying to figure as per the installation instructions on my 581i but ,to me,it is VERY vague-for instance it says measure 12" from the top of the transom but how do you do that with the rub rail there? Also the actual transom (where the motor is)is a different angle than the side portion where the transducer actually goes. Does anyone know the transom angle on '94 Ranger R72? Maybe Ranger could tell me??? Hope somebody can shed light on this for me!

Mount to Jack Plate with Transducer Sheild Saver like the one on the right. Or like the one on the left without protection.

'what are you trying to accomplish'...according to the transducer instructions you need to either know or figure out tge transom angle then use this little chart to determine what cog position/angle you set the transducer at.

You'r not building a watch! Mount it with a Transducer Shield Saver, motor past a bridge piling , set it and your done. Anyway, my guess is 8 to 12 deg.

The 12" measurement is to the side of the motor so it doesnot disturb water flow for the cooling of the motor if you are mounting at the bottom of the hull to get all speed readings. Post a pic ou your transom and I can make some suggestion on mounting options.

Thanks guys-I know it shouldn't be rocket science but I was just going by the installation instructions saying take a string and a plumb and go 12" from the very top of the transomand etc. anyways I installed it and will guess at a position and adjust as needed. Thank you all for your help/suggestions-tight lines boys!
