RIBase
Looking for a plotter/sonar unit

It is time to think about some electronics for the RIB.

Purely because space could be an issue we were thinking along the lines of an all in one unit.

Any ideas?

Im liking the look of the Garmin 451s, I was playing with a 551s the other day and it seemed user friendly.

Anyone have one?

Price cuts are making the 750s look very tempting...

Alot of bang for the your buck.

I feel it might be TOO much bang for our needs though, the majority of our adventures at sea will consist of island hopping off Eigg, Muck, Rhum and exploring a few of inland sea lochs around the West here.

Maybe something a tad more basic would suit our needs better?
