Don't cut any more holes in the boat. Most transducers are a standard size. My B&G depth and Simrad fishfinder were the same diameter as the ST60 log and depth they replaced.
Prize out the old transducers and replace with new not a difficult job. The diameter of the transducers can be found on the web and compared to your existing units, but they are likely to be the same.

I've had good luck with DMI repairing my Datamarine Corinthian series instruments.
I'm actually looking for a Datamarine AWX wind expander to add to what I currently have. I also need another Edson Datamarine instrument Pod and Edson mounting arm.
Even though I have installed a garmin GPSmap 4212 bundle with radar and interfaced with a Milltech AIS, I still like the old datamarine instruments.

This is only my second post, feedback is appreciated.
