Depth Gauge or Fish Finder...

Hello Again;

The Depth Gauge on my boat is toast and I am looking at a replacement. I thought the easiest way of repairing it would be to use a fish finder. I can borrow a fish finder off my father in law to get the boat back to Canada then worry about figuring out if the transducer is bad or the gauge or whatever.

Would it just make more sense to replace the unit now as the boat is out of the water than to fiddle with a fish finder and then replace the unit next year when I haul out the boat to do the bottom paint?

Maybe I am trying to take the easy way out on a few things and this is something I should just take the time to fix now.

Thanks all;

Robert
