Rotto Swim Transducer Setup

 Noticed a boat on the Rotto swim yesterday (boat name Bubbles) that had this transducer set up, transducer looked 1/2 meter long and great solid adjusting system. Could not see any transducer on line that it may have been, any comments?

Thats not a little transducer.

Looks to be something like an R109 or similar.

They weight about 15kg so no wonder he went all out with his bracket fabrication.

We looked into doing something similar to this once before using outboard jack plates.

That's definitely a man sized setup.
