IMO, if the transducer is the same vintage as your boat you may want to look at newer technology, as it will be a lot easier to get to your goal. There are some reasonably priced depth/fish finder devices out there. Unless you can find a used device on line, which may be difficult. The model numbers on your cables may lead you to your answer on line. Most older cables would not be compatible with the newer equipment. If the old transducer is not leaking, I would just leave it and instal new transducer in the hull. JMO.

While you could probably find some electronics to work with that transducer, you'd probably be better off just replacing the system with something newer. Some of the very old ones were single frequency, then they moved to a dual frequency. Now with the CHIRP ones you get some "high definition". The display will also be much more functional than the old displays too, with more detail on the bottom. If the boat is out of the water, I would plan on knocking out the old transducer and putting the new one in its place before I launched in the spring.
