thru Hull any good? can you identify?

new to boating and I am restoring an 1987 28' Chris Craft. there is a thru hull but the electronics are long gone. Is this reusable? or should I just remove it? I will be looking for a new chart plotter in the spring, will be used on Lake Michigan. Any suggestions?

It’s not likely to fit anything new. We had the same issue. I removed the old bits and reused the hole with the new through-hull

Depth transducers are matched to depth sounders by their frequencies.
The chances of finding a modern match are remote, plus the calbles degrade.
Discard it.
