If I had any technical ability (or my neighbor was home from the NT) I might fit a sounder, but I actually really like the purity of no electrics on board. I've got a 5.2m boat with a 90hp and everything electric, including a big stereo, on it. How do you fit all that stuff onto such a small vessel?

I have a Garmin Echo 300c but am looking at the Lowrance 4 DSI for the nav and imaging features.

One I use most is my Lowrance, as its on the yak I use the most.

So it gets the vote.

But I must admit I do like it the best, probably only because it is a higher end model than the others :wink: But they all do the job.

Lowrance Mark 5x Pro from memory. Honestly can't remember the last time I used it though. Not a lot of call for it in a skinny bass or cod creek :wink:
