Economy minded depth and speed instruments
I'm looking for an inexpensive route to get speed and depth data in the cockpit of my C&C 25. I don't plan on any other fancy instruments just the depth/speed mounted on the port cockpit bulkhead. I also don't plan on doing much more than day sails or an occasional overnight.
I was ready to pull the trigger on the Raymarine ST40 Bidata but from all the installation instructions I downloaded it requires two through-hulls. My boat currently has a through-hull installed for the old knot-meter which I would replace with the new paddle wheel, but I really don't want to drill another hole in the hull if I don't have to. From looking over thier product website, Raymarine does not sell a combo transducer (speed/depth) for the ST40 series instruments.
What other options might I have that is economical and requires only one hole?
