Yes, but this generally doesn't work for transducer wires, which are usually affixed to the transducer at one end, and must come into the wiring conduit via the transducer end. Unless you're cutting the wire at the old transducer, it can't be used to pull wire in the proper direction—transducer to instrument display—so you generally need a messenger line. I don't recommend cutting the transducer wires, even on the old transducer, because they might still be useful.

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.
