I recently purchased a Humminbird ICE-45 and have been having issues with the transducer float not floating straight up in the hole. For the most part it sits side ways and takes up most of my hole. I have the support cable installed properly and it just seems like the transducer isn't heavy enough to keep it straight. Has anybody else had this issue? Thanks, Jake.

Jake, I have the same unit but put both cables through the float and leave more slack in cables. The Support arm appears to work too !

I just used the Marcum as a base to build my own arm using some flat stock, a few plastic washers for tension, a plastic spacer and some hardware, total.cost $3

Yup, ditch the float. I got a marcum transducer arm on Amazon that I use on my 55.

Take the float off just a waste of space.

I have the ice 55 which is more or less the same unit. My advice is to just go without the float. In my experience, I have found it easier to just remove the transducer when a quality fish is on the other end. The grey rubber clips do work great for marking the depth of the transducer. Or just get rid of the 2nd rubber hose and run the float in between rubber stoppers.
