Some depth finders are not wired to the running of the boat but an ACC switch. Also if you are not getting power you might want to track the wires to the power block and see if a fuse is blown. What type of depth finder is it?

Run a jumper cable from the + to the red wire and see what it does or go online and check the manual. You're only talking of $100-$150 so you can offer the person a break on the price.
