Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

My Minn Kota Endura C2 30 arrived today, and as I was gazing upon it with visions of 'gills and shellcrackers dancing in my head, I looked at the screws that hold the head to the shaft and I said to myself, "Self, those sure look like I could unscrew them, turn the head 180 degrees, tighten them up again, then mount the motor to on L-shaped piece of wood that I already have, attach said piece of wood to the bow of my Livingston and have the motor stick down nicely between the two hulls. Then my cheap transom-mount motor would become just like an expensive bow-mount motor, except without the foot control."

So, those with wisdom in these matters, can the head in fact be turned on the shaft? And if I can do that, should I? Or is it more practical to keep it on the stern next to the outboard?

Next, what are your thoughts on transducer placement? There's a piece of wood affixed to the stern that looks like it one had a transducer attached. Is that a good place for the transducer? The little Humminbird that I got for use on my float tube is getting a new home :-)

Thanks!

yes and keep the transducer as far away from the electric as possible in my experience
