Default Raytheon V850, Transducer-help!

I have a 1991 25 Outrage with 1991 vintage electronics (Raytheon V850, color sounder, Raychart 610 map) This summer, I noticed problems with the color sounder not reading the depth properly or not reading it all....Today while inspecting the transom area of the boat, I noticed a deep laceration on the transducer cord/wire near the transducer unit. This must be the problem! Is it possible to replace the wire on such an old unit? Do I have to place the entire transducer? ;?

Also, I have a Lowrance LMS200 Loran, fishfinder.(1991 vintage) The wire pulled completely out of its transducer. Can this be replaced? ;?

**When they work, they are great so I would like to keep them.....Thanks, Homey.

Unfortunately, both transducers will need to be replaced.

Like Taxi said,they'll need to be replaced. The good news is that Transom-mounted transducers are easier to replace than thru-hull transducers & cheaper,too!
