I think the answer will be to commit to the unit choice and when it arrives I'll get a better feel of where it might sit nicely on the boat... and how to sort the transducer location for a daily unpack/pack SIB.
For me it's looking like the full detail chart inclusion will sway towards the 45V.
your right the gurnard had an input by having a look at his set up and a brief PM to him this was the result.
after i sold the rib i wanted a small boat as i near retirement but still wanted the scope to have everything at hand, hence the set up as it is, yet to try it out.
as you say get your kit and have a play its all part of it for me i enjoy the build as much as using it and as always use it and amend as required,i don't think you will go wrong with the Garmin its small and will suit your aerotec essence on a light weight set up.
hummingbird do a transom mount set up have a look on their site might give food for thought.
also sea-screw have a seat in pvc with storage in white but not sure how it would go in the aerotec with the deep v floor it extends under the tubes to fix it in.
