Got an email from Standard Horizon yesterday. They no longer make electronics such as speed logs and depth finders. I confirmed this with a phone call to SH. I have original instruments, with 4" round hole cut outs, that I would like to replace. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Raymarine instruments can be installed over SH instruments. They come with an adapter ring. Unfortunately you are going to need new transducers.
Happy New Year

I have a Standard Horizon depthsounder that came with the boat. My guess is it is from 1986. I get a display but it's just gobbledygook. No amount of button stabbing seems to help. Assuming that it's getting power, what do you reckon might be wrong?

I had a problem with my Signet depth sounder (also a 1986 vintage) several years ago. I called the factory and they suggested 3 things:
1. Check to make sure no paint or growth is on the transducer face.
2. Do not coil the extra wire tightly. It should be in a loose figure 8
3. Unplug the sending unit wire from the depthsounder, clean the contacts and plug it back in. (This fixed my problem!)
