I have a Seafarer 700 Echo sounder. The transducer, 150kHz works. But the darn spinner unit is huge. I'd like to replace it with something smaller, and perhaps with a fish
I have a steel
boat, the transducer has a 5/8" hole in the hull
and is mounted into a wood fairing.
Plan A. First option would be replace the transducer and sounder with a smaller modern unit, using the same 5/8" mounting format. I looked at Airmar and could not find this type of transducer available. These transducers are available in the UK as NASA uses them, but with the same archaic huge readout.
Can someone point me to a make/model that uses this 5/8" format?
Plan B would be to get a new sounder readout, something smaller, but to reuse the existing 150kHz transducer. But not the NASA Stingray. Too big.
Plan C is to do a whole new install. Which I really don't want to do.
Plan D is to just keep the existing set up, but that doesn't really work.
