Exactly...

I will use a plastic twine that my trade guys at work use to pull line in long haul elec/data conduit as a messenger line. I have seen them pull 3 or 4 hundred feet of Ethernet thru PACKED conduit with tons of bends. I was planning on sacrificing the existing transponder leads to pull the twine since they are non-functioning.
Probably a good choice, since it was purpose designed for conduit messenger line by the sounds of it.

I'd be very surprised if the depth/temp transducer was dead...they are close to indestructible, and the displays usually die first.

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.
