DragonFly Bottom Lock issue

I have a new Dragonfly  model E7008 which I just installed on a small Keywest 176I  loose bottom lock at speeds above 5 mph. I have tried several different locations for the transducer. I setup an arrangement using a 1x3 by 4ft extension which allows me to move the transducer without drilling new holes each time. I even tried clamping it on the side , well away from the motor etc. That didn't help, same results.Ant thoughts would be appreciated.Fred   Lighthouse Point, Fl.See More
