I don't know buddy might be worth a shot to try and fix it before you replace it, good luck.

As an Electronics Tech I can tell you it's very fixable. If I were in your neck of da woods I'd fix it for you.

If it's just the wires (from pic), you need to splice them with environmental splices to make them waterproof. Then cover and seal with heat shrink.

If it's because the outer insulation has pulled out of the back of the plug you will need to separate the plug and reseat it. Not sure if the plug can be separated though. If it can't you can use RTV to create a stress relief. Kinda tricky if you've never done it before.

Is that plug from a Hummingbird? If so I might be able to come up with one.

humminbird transducer cable on ebay for around $15 .. some people have had success splicing and Heat Shrinking the cables only when they where trying to shorten the cable , your PiranhaMax series transducer cable has come apart at the plug and that is not good and will be a tough patch.. if it was down lower where you had some cable left you would have a better success rate at a fix .
Tony in all honesty Bro i would just buy a new cable
