Good morning all. I recently picked up a custom hancock 22 skiff. It is rigged with a hydraulic jackplate and trim tabs. It has a Garmin 840xs (little older). I'm having trouble reading the bottom on plane. It will only show interference like cavitation. The transducer is mounted between the motor and the trim tab on the starboard side. I know I've adjusted it correctly (at least how I have in the past on my V hull boats). Anyone have any suggestions on getting rid of the interference? I was thinking about pushing the transducer to the extreme starboard side to get away from the motor.

What is directly inline/ahead of the transducer? Smooth bottom or a strake or a thru hull or a ...
I made the mistake one time a few decades ago. Read fine while sitting still or going very slow but lost bottom with any speed due to turbulence from a hull strake that was perfectly aligned with my transducer. I could not have centered it any better if I was trying.
