Make sure the transducer isn't set too deep. Sounds like you're getting turbulance when the boat gets going. You can adjust it up/down by loosening the screws. I usually set them so the seam is slightly above the bottom of the hull.

Does the transducer need to be all the way down near the bottom pad ? Right now it is about half way down the back of boat ...
