I couldn't find a post that addresses my question:

has anyone got any experience mounting a transom-mountable transducer inside the hull so that it functions as a through-hull transducer?

Older transducers really don't work with the newer stuff... the newer transducers are mostly made by one company, most of the major fish finders have proprietary plug interfaces that won't work with older cables/transducers.
