Default Airmar/Garmin P66 8-pin to 6-pin

So I have been slowly putting everything together on the boat. I had to replace the transducer first, so I ordered and installed an Airmar P66 with a Garmin plug on the other end. Once installed, I pulled my new transducer line along with several other wires I planned to replace.

I recently purchased and installed a Garmin 740s, finished my install and went to plug in the last wire connecting the transducer to the 740 and realized they don't match. I was sent a P66-DST8G. The 740s I have requires a P66-DST6G.

I wasn't aware there were two different plugs until this point and REALLY don't want to replace everything I have already installed.

I am wondering if anybody makes an adapter plug or if there is anyone I can contact who can custom make something for me. Thanks in advance for any leads!

The 8 pin you have is for the GSD24.
