I wanted to make sure that you got your datamarine instruments running. I acquired all old stock from Datamarine, and can definitely give you a hand if you still need it.

Let me know!

I bought an old Morgan 321 w/Corinthian depth & speed. The installed instruments were very rough, but it came along with a pair of used but much better instruments. My first haul out I swapped out the instruments & the speed xducer but left the depth because the installed one is bronze and mounted in a fairing block and the "new" one is plastic and wouldn't go in. I figured the same instrument would use the same transducer freq.

We the depth readings bounce all over the place. S I'm not sure what the issue might be. Anybody know how to trouble shoot these things? Obviously, next trip to the boat (4+ hours away) I'll take the "new" transducer and hang it over the side - wish I'd had it with me when it when back in the water! Any othe insight into these instruments will be most appreciated.

Interestingly there are two shops that service old Datamarine instruments. I used DMI (datamarine Industries, www.dmimarine.com). The company in East Falmouth I know nothing about, but I vaguely remember reading some mixed reviews...

DMI serviced my Corinthian S2000DL depth sounder, were very responsive, and did a great job. Works - and looks - like new. Cheaper than replacing all the instruments, which was the other option. As previously stated, they quote before doing work, and do work on time. My experience was positive. And they have a bulldog called Spike...what else can you ask for?

wpcheadle, I sent my depth sounder into DMI, they tested it, diagnosed the fault as the transducer, recommended a new transducer, and tuned the depth guage to work with it. I installed it in-hull, and it works fine now - solid as a rock.

He has not posted here in two years. Suspect he is not in business anymore. Contact DMI.

I contacted DMI and they spend 10-15 minutes with me on the phone. Turns out I just needed to solder a new connector on the end of the depth meter cable - it's been working ever since (the knot meter's another story - barnacles and paddlewheels, etc). I boxed up my old instruments and new transducers and shipped them off to DMI in hopes they can use them for spare parts just to say thanks. I will be calling on them when the time comes to upgrade.
