Default Swapping out Ray 850V with Furuno 582L. Worth the trouble?

I just purchased a new boat with a Raymarine 850V sounder. I have yet to sell my old boat with a Furuno 582L. I was considering swapping the two units out. I liked the Furuno for my freshwater applications fishing Walleye in no more than 30FOW and Salmon as deep as 100-120 ft down over water as deep as 500 feet. Is it worth the hassle or is that Raymarine a good unit? I am wondering if it is worth the trouble of changing transducers, pulling all the cord and mounting the Furuno.

I'm sure there are some opinions out there.

I have already decided to remove the Raychart 600 xx from the new boat and steal my Garmin 215 off the old boat. At least that is the plan.

I'd do the swap on FF's too. The Raymarine was probably a good unit in its day, but its day is long past.
