Dear anglerdave,

If your canoe is made of anything other than metal the transducer will shoot through the hull. You can just get a small food storage container like the ones made to hold a sandwich or a quart of soup and fill it with water. Set the transducer in it and you should be good to go.

If you want to permanently mount the transducer you can just epoxy it to the bottom of the hull on the inside of the canoe. You need to make sure you don't have any airgaps in the epoxy though.

An alternative to permanent mounting is a bracket or a magnetic mount. You can check with the folks at Float Tube Fanatics. I use one of their mounts on my Creek Company Voyager pontoon. Their products are well made, easy to set up, and they are great people to deal with.
