B&G model swap...cabling

I am in the process of figuring out how to replace a B&G h1000 system with the newer h3000. Boat was damaged in a yard accident. Insurance is footing the bill.
I'm versed in their network protocol...somewhat, anyway...that's not the problem. What I would like to do is use the existing (yellow) multi conductor data cable. I would use the appropriate junction boxes and terminate the cable properly, etc.,..Pulling a new set of data cables will be a real PIA.
Many thanks,
Howard Keiper

I installed a new h3000 system about a year ago. Fantastic equipment, highly recomended. I used new wiring, but would not see a problem using existing cable, providing it has enough conductors . I will check the handbook to see how many conductorsare used if you cannot find the info online.

Should work fine. Both use four conductor shielded cable. We are using the h3000 on the new fleet of sailboats at the Naval Academy.
