Soli~ the tranny is right in front (back, since V-drive engines are in backwards) of the engine. On my Sanger it is a Velvet Drive. It has a dipstick in it. The V-drive unit (mine is a Walter) is right in front of the tranny which changes direction of the drive shaft and points it toward the stern. You may have to lift up your back seat to access it. It has a dipstick in it as well. Mine is a '99, but I don't think Sanger has changed. Running Fake a lake wont heat up these fluids unless you put it in gear, and thats not a good idea out of water.(no lubrication for driveshaft) so I always change fluids after running the boat in the water.
On a '99 Black Scorpion
Tranny = trans fluid
V-drive = 30w oil
edit: I think I've seen an access cover on the newer Sangers, so you may not have to lift the back seat
