Cheap echosounder / fishfinder?

Afternoon all.

My Garmin Fishfinder 80 has finally given up after 8 years of service, most likely prompted by Searider junior tugging on the cables.
(Co-ax cable broken and unit doesn't power up either)

I'm minded to replace it with a Garmin Fishfinder 100 as the 80 performed really well - including at speed. - but what other suggestions?

Only really need to know the depth but a fishfinder seem the cheapest way of doing this.

If you don't have a plotter go for the Garmin 451s

Try BHG for a price or Boatsandoutbaords on here

Prices are cheap now
