Yes, that is quite easy.

You just need a piece of cloth and the plug to replace the transducer.

Turn the nut holding the transducer in place.

Pull the transducer out and replace it by the plug.

The thru-hull has sort of a simple valve, so just a little amount of water comes in (maybe 200 ml max, thus the cloth).

Besides: a reason for failure of the transducer might also be vegetation or mussels on the hull (wasn't that in my case). That's why my technician recommended pulling the transducer whenever the boat is left unmoved in the harbor for a longer time.

Good luck!

Changing the transducer should be the same as cleaning the log, once you have fitted the blank plug in the hole you can replace the transducer and then refit the new transducer in the hole. Just the 1/2 lt of water to mop up.

It is the same, as at least for the 350 Hanse uses a three-in-one solution for temp, speed and depth.

I am trying to order new. Need to specify what plug.

What type is the plug on the triducer. It looks like NMEA2000. See picture.
The other plugs on my boat looks like simnet plugs.
Sea-U is a 370e #532 located SW Norway

Sea-U: Could this be a misunderstanding? I meant the plastic plug replacing the triducer when taken out of the thru-hull.

You will find the DST transducer has a short cable with Micro C / NMEA 2000 plug. This connects to the existing NMEA backbone. You should find the connection in the floor space where the transducer is located. The backbone cable probably runs to a multi simnet connector near the chart table, but you don't need to replace that.

Presuming that the same transducer and lead are fitted to all models can anyone tell me how long the transducer lead is from the transducer to the plug. This may help me locate the plug connector on my 430 as it is not under the floor by the transducer fitting as the cable disappears under the saloon floor in a conduit?

Thanks

Mine is about 1 metre but is coiled so the backbone connection is only about 30mm from the transducer and very visible. The backbone then runs aft into a stringer and from there appears to be inaccessible until it emerges near the main switchboard.
