Standard SL-1 Digital Speed Log
My father owns a 1984 O'day 28. I used to personally sail on board "Dakota", a Swan 46 and also the "Yankee Clipper" a 40' Sparkman & Stephens designed wooden yawl.
Anyways we have a Standard SL-1 digital speed log on the O'day and after some research I have found that not only do they no longer carry the part needed anywhere but that Standard no longer even makes a speed log or similar replcaement. The part needed is the transducer and cord to plug into the unit. It no longer sends the signal.
To make matters worse it is a circular bezel that holds the unit and most everyone makes a square one now so that is out of the question.
My questions are as follows:
Will any transducer work as long as it fits in the through-hull?
Would using a pre-owned Standard SL-40 series speed log work just fine since it has a circular face?
Any information or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to all!
