One option to consider is to leave the transducer in place. It is a solid plug and has no moving parts. Many feel the depth sounder is the most important instrument, and having a back up ready to go is not a bad idea. A through hull transducer will also be more acurate, although I understand the newer surface mounts are pretty good. It seems different manufactures of displays use the same transducers so you may have options as to how to read the depth.
