Default Airmar 1k Ducer/High Speed Flaring

Hi Gang. First post here. Been in touch with Furuno tech and it seems my 1850 DF 1K sounder might have a tranducer related issue but I'm not totally convinced.

I have a good picture in stand alone 200 mhz sounder mode, even at high speeds, until I split the screen to combine Chart Plotter with 200 mhz mode. The sounder screen then losses it = mass red. No high speed flaring block on my 25 Skip using this Air Mar but it worked fine for 6-yrs so the block should not be the issue right? Note: The 'ducer does have a small hair-line crack on the lower backside. Base is clean and no acetone has ever been used. Question. "If" advisable to replace this pricey bronze baby, what's the most affordable outfit to purchase an Airmar B260 with flaring block from? Thanks for your input. Looking forward to sharing

Welcome to THT. If you check the sponsor forums here you'll see BOE (by owner electronics) great delivery & prices on Airmar stuff (and everything actually)
