Just bought a new boat and am stumped with one thing ( at the moment ) The yacht has a sonar but at the moment the display doesn't work as the switch is a bit corroded.
The issue I have is that I don't have a depth sounder
and being in an Archipelago I really need one.
So the question is can I use the sonar transducer and use it with a depth sounder
such as tac tic etc? As you can see on the below picture it is a lot more than a small through hull
( the massive hunk sitting out of the hull
on the left) it is actually pretty big and pic doesnt do it justice. Its at least 30cm long and 12-15cm wide.
The through hull on the inside is pretty blank and doesn't give away any detail of what it could be brand wise etc. I imagine I would need to cut it and just wire it if it is possible. I have not had to much around with instruments as yet.
Any advice appreciated.
