Anyone trained in splicing coax cables can fix it for you, Shorty.

Cost a lot less than a new one.

Cory-
I think it may also depend where the cable is broken. If it is below the waterline or subject to alot of moisture(like most things on boats), forget about a splice, it will most likely end up being a short term solution , as the water WILL get into it. I would recommend that you re-run a new cable, it will save you alot of headaches in the long run.Transducer cables are also notoriously known to degrade signal if the have a break in the line. I respect JB's opinion tremendously on most of his postings ,I have to respectfuly disagree on this one though(sorry JB).Good luck with whatever route you choose.

Thanks whaler27cc. That's probably the route I will go. I thought about signal degradation and decided it would probably be best to get a whole new set up. Thanks guys.
