If he wants a transducer that directly produces NMEA2000 output, then there are only three choices (ST800, ST850, DST800), and none will fit a 1.25" thruhull. It may be possible to use a non-N2K transducer connected to a converter box of some sort, but that seems a kludge way of doing it.

Edit: 4 choices counting the ultrasonic transducer.
