Yes a converter box works but it is indeed a kludge.

Since I installed new speed and depth transducers not that long ago that work fine I didn't want to toss them, so got a box that connected them to my network. A lot cheaper and I didn't have to spend hours feeding wires through inaccessible parts of my bilge.
