You'll probably need to replace the transducer, as the typical depth sounder will not have the right frequencies for a fish finder. Fish finders and depth sounders are related, but fish finders require much higher resolution than do depth finders, and generally use several frequencies to give better resolution at various depths. I doubt that the depth sounder that you have uses a transducer that the fishfinder will work with.

Are the depthsounder and fishfinder even the same brand?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
