Default Standard Horizon Fish Finder

Here is a question for the electronic gurus; on our Sundancer 310 we have a Raymarine 7" chart plotter/radar as well as the standard ST60 Tri-data as well as a stand alone Raytheon fish finder. We also have a standard horizon 1000c, we are thinking of adding the SH fish finder to the 1000c, does anybody have feedback on the performance of the SH unit? As well will I need another transducer for the SH unit or could I used the one from the existing Raytheon unit or the transducer from the Raymarine ST60?

I have the CP1000 and the FF520 black box. Once I was able to figure out how to fine tune the FF I had excellent results with it and was able to hold bottom at high speeds and identify bait balls and fish on the bottom and in suspension. The user manual is a bit awkward and it took me a while (still learning) how to tune it just right.

Not sure about your ducer but I have an Airmar thru hull ducer which I purchased from BOE Marine.

Good luck!

I have the cp1000 and the ff520 with the airmar p79 shoot thru. Untill a few weeks ago it was working fine, holding bottom at all speeds. It stopped reading the bottom at planing speed and then off and on. Sent it back to standard and in a week and a half got it back and now it works just fine. I have a post about this called tranducer ticking/now not
