Grease tube is still in gun, so I don't want to remove to see mfgr, but it is waterproof marine grease and probably came from Wally World. The actual mfgr would probably be hard to pinpoint.

I had a Garmin 182 C. It used a GSD20 interface box between the 182C and the transducer. My transducer was a P66. I switched to a Garmin 547XS GPS/sounder. I eliminated the GSD20, as the P66...
