Raymarine instrument configuration - i70 and transducers

Dear raymarine experts, I have studied the raymarine website in order to find out a suitable configuration for my needs but, while getting familiar with raymarine products, I came up with many questions.

I have a beneteau 31ft with very obsolete (more than 20 yo) depth and speed displays and two through hull transducers . I do not have a wind station and there is not a wire/ cable in the mast to easily install a wind transducer.

I would like to begin replacing the old speed and depth displays with a raymarine i70 instrument but I am not convinced about which transducer I should install. One good option would be using smart transducers (no need for ICT-5) and get a DST800 Plastic (A22111). However, as I have two holes in the hull I would prefer to replace both transducers. DT800-12 (A22112) would do depth and temperatures but what about the smart transducer for the speed, does it exist?(Question 1) If not why?(Question 2)

If I decide not to use a smart transducer and use an ICT-5 which transducers would be the best?(Question 3) For depth I guess that I should use D800/P17 (E26030) or P19 (M78713-PZ-A), but what is the difference between the two?(Question 4) For speed transducers I can choose between P17 (E25025) and ST800/P120 (E26031), again, what is the difference? (Question 5)

A final doubt is this. I was thinking that in order to simplify the installation of the wind transducer on the mast I could install a wireless wind transmitter (T120) coupled with a multifunction wireless display (T112). However, can this wireless display be connected to the i70 via the seatalk backbone (Question 6).

Howdy,

Re: replacing the two hull transducers. I'd recommend going with the single DST800 and closing/re-glassing the second hole. Avoid the complexity of the ICT ... its meant to bridge old kit onto NMEA 2K (or whatever Ray calls their version of NMEA 2K).

I just did the same transducer refit, though with B&G Triton displays.

Looks like Ray's version of the DST800 is listed here.

Raymarine Instrument Transducer Options

And appears to be compatible with the i70s.

Forgot to mention. Airmar OEMs many of the transducers offered by Ray, Garmin, Furuno, Navico, etc. The DST800 being one of the Airmar products.
