[QUOTE=REW;6331876]Lazy,
Yes, return the depth finder minus the transducer and tell the store that you would like the price of the transducer subtracted from your refund payment when you return the unit.

Good luck[/QUOTE
It's going to be hard, to top REW's response.

I hope your family donates your brain to science when you pass. Your ability to create outlandish solutions amazes me,,,,,,

I am surprised at the response about using a transducer from a new unit. Then, have the store replace the transducer.

Over the years, when a part is needed I have worked with various stores and have done this very thing on a number of items that needed a replacement part that were not readily available in the store that sold the items.

Just work with the store and be reasonable and come up with a happy soution for both your request and the stores supply issue.

Be safe

Buy the transducer online and go fishing.

HRG,
Thanks for the compliment.

That is what I was paid to do during my working years to come up with new solutions for unusual as well as usual problems.

It is something that I have always enjoyed doing.

You are pretty creative yourself.

Be safe

REW, That reminds me of Carl Kiekhaefer the pioneer in boat racing engines before becoming Mercury Marine put a new engine in a boat and while getting it ready before the race found a problem with the fuel pump. The problem was the new engine used a new fuel pump which wasn't available in parts stores yet so to get the part in time he bought a new car that had the engine and removed the fuel pump and then told the dealer to order a new pump.

Pokey,
Absolutely, folks - including myself - do this all of the time to get the necessary part as quickly as possible.

Be safe

Doubt you damaged the unit itself....however good luck splicing those wires ( I do it for a living and would go buy another ) It's a high performance unit and simply won't be the same. To a degree I agree with some of what REW said and everything Bobby winds said.
