I just got a new boat
, a 40ft spacesailer. In love with the old girl but sadly her electronics
are just that.... old. One of the more important pieces of electronics
that isn't currently working is the depth sounder
It had a depth sounder
fitted that was just displaying 0.0m. In a box of assorted junk the previous owner left me was another depth
sounder of the same brand and make. I plugged it is and it gave a reading but the reading kept fluctuating from 7.7m all the way to 12m and displaying everything in between. I am just curious if it is the transducer or the head
unit that is likely to be at fault.
I really don't want to have to replace the transducer if I can avoid it, especially if it isn't at fault, is there a way of testing the transducer that anyone knows of?
Is this a problem anyone else has had?
