Islander 28 - Original depth transducer in oil bath?

I'm currently on the hard replacing a couple thru-hulls and just realized where my depth transducer is located: under the starboard settee, next to the waste holding bladder in a half-dome fluid bath. There is no thru-hull fitting, which is great. But the dome is glassed into the hull.

I'm wondering if anyone with a similar setup has re-used this bath with new depth transducers? I've specifically got the Raymarine ST-60plus.

Also, what fluid would you use for the bath? Appears that the fluid in there is green glycol.
