As the old B&G Hydra system gave up on our 54, and also the sonic speed system failed. I did not see a reasonable way to go on and repair the old system.
So we renewed the windvane and use Triton2 instruments.
To replace the sonic speed sensor, we choosed the Airmar DST800 tridata sensor. It fits in the through hull of the old deapth sensor and givs all, speed, deapth, sea temperature.
With that renewal comes an NMEA2k bus and all the old Hydra central cpu and extension processor and all the wiring goes off.
In that way we did not need to drill a new throughull and keapt the compfortable sonic speed without paddle wheel.
