First. thanks everyone for your replies!
I bought this boat about three weeks ago, boat/motor has less then 100 hours of use, and it did come with a FF being a Lowrance X65 with a HS-WSBK- wide angle ducer and a ST-TBK speed temp sensor. Since the previous owner bought the boat and motor ten years ago, I assume that the FF is of the same vintage and very out dated function wise. A new FF, in the $200.00 bracket, may have better performance then the X65 unit. I have NO idea if the x65 was a cheap or expensive unit.
Any opinons on the x65?
The Furuno LS 4100 looks tempting.:angling:
thanks, Jim

Think I will make use of it and try to find a temp unit "Koch"?
