I'd try and get a replacement transducer that will fit your thru-hull first. BTW, you do lose quite a bit of power on a through-the-hull setup, and it can be seriously affected by the hull material. If the hull is cored, it won't work. If there are any voids or bubbles in the laminate below the transducer, it won't work, etc...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
