I have not posted much on this site, but have learned a lot. I have the Furuno LS-6100 with Airmar B744V tri-ducer. Water speed stopped working, so my knee jerk reaction was to purchase a new Airmar paddlewheel for the B744V. This did not fix my problem - my transducer was not receiving the speed from the insert, so I had to order the Airmar B744V-INS-JB Junction Box Style Insert. This worked great.
I now have 2 - paddlewheel inserts for the B744V that I do not need.

First one came with B744V out of box and does not have the full-length slots around the new paddlewheel (bumped bottom at anchor once), but should still work. Boat always kept on lift so no growth or bottom paint.

Second one is brand new inserted once put back in box after it didn't work. Paid $35.90 with S&H from Blue Heron Marine (super fast shipping and easy to use site). Will let both go for $30 shipped (in US).

Thought I would post in case anyone has the same problem.
