As you know John's out of work hobby last year was restoring a 1960 something boat (outboard motor)..... He has been wanting a depth finder and a fish finder. 

I saw this in the Bass Pro ad but know nothing. I though you had mentioned boating in previous blurts on the board and didn't know if you had any knowledge or if your DH would be avail for brain picking. 

I have no clue what to get John for Christmas and this is something he wants, and seems ot be a good price... $179 before $30 rebate.

I asked Ron. He said they have things with beams dual and tripple. But if he's not a serious fisherman that this would be fine. If he was heavil, very heavily  in to fishing then he would suggest something different.

We have a Garmin fish/depth finder on out boat and it works, well did until we bounced the bottom of the boat on the beach

Garmin is a good reliable brand. Decent price. Bass pro carries good stuff not junk. Quotedfrom hubby.

Thank you :)

Chris, how the heck did I forget that you and Ron boat? Probably because of all the snow talk now that i think about it. 

John is defidently not a serious fisherman, just something to do,. 

We own Garmin's for our GPS's in the trucks and I am very happy with them. 

Guess, I know what John is going to get. I just feel bad that it will only be 1 real gift, the other two he knows about... lol

I would have to say it's because of all the snowmobile talk. Heck, it's all I've been talking about lately. We're just waiting on snow, at least 6 inches of it. Oh and for the trails, they open December 19TH. I don't see us getting cold enough or enough snow by December 19TH but we are jonsing to go since last year was a complete let down.

I also wouldn't feel bad. I'm sure your hubby will be ever so happy for the depth finder.

So I went down a model, still does depth and fish, just doesn't ahve a split screen (shows everything on one) and isn't in color. 

The sales associate was an older gentleman, and I basicly asked him "If I was your Daughter, and your son in law only made it out between Cross Lake and Lock 1 in Phienix about twice a month, which would you suggest?"
It is a still a Garmin, and has the same hertz etc.....
