SternMate™ Sets the Standard for Transom-mounted Transducer Installation and Management 
Transducer installation and optimization frequent the majority of all marine electronics trouble shooting issues. Your SternMate™ system is the only transducer installation and management appliance to help you avoid   aggravating, and sometimes costly, transducer issues boat owners experience. The "old way" of transducer installation is problematic and obsolete. Learn how the SternMate™ system can help you improve the function of your marine electronics. Remove the guesswork and Follow the "RULES" for an effective transducer installation on any boat hull. 
TAKE CONTROL of your electronic high speed sonar transducers.

The SternMate™ transducer mounting system is the most unique, functionally engineered transducer mounting system of its kind available anywhere. Designed by marine professionals for damage-free transducer installation and high speed sounding optimization, the SternMate™ system is universal and configurable to suit most any transducer mounting scheme. Nanticoke Maritime understands all too well the complexity and inherent problems associated with transducer installation. It's daunting, it's damaging and it's misunderstood and most fail to consider the consequences until after the screw holes are drilled or transducer mounting plates glued/screwed on. The dynamics of water movement created by a fast moving boat can help or hinder you when it involves high speed transducer optimization. SternMate™ "covers the bases" when it comes to meeting your unique high speed and imaging transducer intallation requirements. Revered by the world's best informed boat owners, SternMate™ fits right in with the function and appearance of your favorite transducer(s) package. SternMate™ has gone the lengths to dramatically improve the way you install your transom-mounted transducer equipment.

YOUR Transducer Under YOUR Control
​​Blame placed on equipment - Drill more holes - Call customer service (suggests reading the manual) - Assume transducer is in wrong place or "faulty" -  Some think “turbulance or “dirty water” problems - Poor boat design - Cheaply made transducer - “Professional” installer failed me - Fishing "forum pros" well-intended advice - Vague transducer installation guide - Relocate X'ducer to another ineffective location - Look over the transom for more "clean water" 
SternMate™ is the best way to mount your high speed transducer, imaging  transducers, on your aluminum, fiberglass or wood boat

About SternMate™  -  It's About Time!
The SternMate™ Transducer System Makes All the Difference
YOUR Transducer Out of Control
SternMate™ effectively repostions your favorite high speed transducer  aftward  and up...where it belongs, allowing it to "skim", not plow, in the elevating displaced water created by your fast moving boat. Common transducer brackets are functionally inadequate and do not permit the latitude you need for proper transducer placement and "fine-tune" adjustment for precision high speed optimization. A transducer, installed directly to the transom (or on a screw-sacrificial poly x'ducer mounting board), places it much to closely to the boat and forces the transducer to "run" in an already agitated waterflow (the "trough) easily compromising your sounding. All too often, the installer fails to considers the multitude of problems destined  to occur once the screw-holes are drilled. SternMate™ can assist dramatically with virtually limitless adjustments, transducer changeouts and will, no doubt, help maintain your boats' value...all in the spirit of avoiding transducer installation damages. Without the SternMate™ system, you're certain to expect problems, including that obnoxious rooster-tail!
 Your transducer was designed to"surf "

The Most Important OEM Transducer Mounting System Ever Developed
...the RULES have changed
A poorly installed transducer can make a bad situation even worse...much worse! And, we don't want to see you do that.
The "trough" is no place for a transducer
