Default Depth Sounder

The depth sounder that Maxum installed on my boat from the factory is a thru-hull sounder. I don't suppose it'd be possible to use this for a fishfinder instead? Any idea what transducer they install for the basic depth sounder?

Default fish finder

I don't think that the transducer on the depth sounder is the same as the kind found on fish finders....the reason I say that is that the beam shape would be different than a depth sounder which is a straight beam rather than a spread beam the depth sounder is focused straight down rather than spread out to locate items of interest.......if you look at them..they are definitely designed differently.....
