I am in need of replacing my factory mounted depth finder on the bow of my 2000 Triton. The original unit was a Lowrance X-48 (which I have never liked) that now has been sun damaged beyond repair. Lowrance does not make a unit to just replace it with and I am not very good with my hands (my dog runs away when I get a screwdriver in my hand). What would be the easiest way to proceed. My Minnkota has a built-in transducer and I have all the GPS, chart and maps I need on my main unit.
Would I be better finding a way to close the hole made when I take out the old unit and bolt a ball-mount with a larger unit or search out a unit to fit the hole? Thank for your help!!
