Well that is where I am now. I am deciding between Furuno and Garmin. This boat had Furuno equipment on it that performed great for over 20 years. I've taken a serious look at Garmin, but I keep circling back to Furuno for their sounder. After over 40 years of dragging baits for pelagics, I have been bitten by the deep drop bottom fishing bug. A great bottom machine and transducer can make snooping around for live bottom, ledges, and the proper substrate at over 100 fathoms much more effective. So far, I think Furuno is the tool for that job. However, I would welcome other's opinions.
