I’m not much of a fisherman but I do like to know the depth while on my boats. I have a Lorance J Hook 4. It does what I want when it comes on. This is the 2nd one I’ve had. Both stopped powering up, but sometimes it will come on. What’s going on With it?

If these are junk, can anyone recommend one that is reliable?

Dielectric grease is your friend. I've seen many instances where this is occurring that a bad connection was a result of corrosion from a marine environment we're cleaning the connections and adding dielectric grease resolved many of the issues. If you would like to go one step further, you can always add shrink tubing over connections after getting them confirmed to seal out any contamination elements. Hope this helps your issues.
