I tried the hawkeye DF1000D but exchanged it for Northstar's D210. I wanted red illumination and the hawkeye was green. Also the Max depth on the Hawkeye was 200 ft vs 600 ft for the Northstar.
But the real point I want to make is that instead of installing their in hull Xducer I was able to interface directly to the existing thru-hull xducer, a remnant of the old datamarine unit which no longer works. I noticed Orion's inventory included an upgraded Depth Sounder so if your issue is the control head/display you may be able to splice into your existing Xducer and save yourself the trouble of finding a suitable location, with fairing block, epoxy, acoustic medium, etc.
