Re: Fishfinder vs depth sensor

I would rather have a depth gauge with a relatively small display and great big numbers...instead I have a fish finder that is so big it has to be mounted just inside the companionway hatch, the actual depth numbers are really small and I hit my head on it while cooking have moved it twice and is in he least bad place.
For those who might want to suggest I just buy a depth gauge...the whole set up isn't cheap, then add hauling the boat and time on the hard....I would end up spending $500+ to buy and install a "cheap" $100 depth sounder. I can't find just a depth sounder the uses my old Si Tex transducer
