 originally thought that but doesnt go to tank mounts on bottom of boat and fuel gauge works  but this unit has no power going to it.

I cant say for sure but it might be an old transducer, my boat still has an old one glued inside the hull at the rear (installed before I owned the boat), just not used anymore with the wiring cut off.

 Would have to agree with old transducer assumption. Not sure about being in an Ali boat tho....

My initial thoughts were either transducer or old speed sensor but since you said its sealed at the bottom it can only bea transducer of some sort.

 Does it go through the hull.

 Does it go through the hull. Transducers don’t like to shoot through ally.
