I am going to take a Dauntless 22' to Los Roques (Venezuela), there are allot of sand banks and coral reefs were I could destroy my boat and my engine.

Is there some kind of sonar that can see ahead and tell me what is coming?

A company call Interphase, I believe, makes/made a forward looking sonar for recreation boats. (www.interphase.com doesn't get the right co) You will have to search for them. I have one of their older wide screen units but it is in a box somewhere.

Units you are looking for are out there. Good Luck.

Great, thanks.
Has anyone used one?
Are they practical?
Are they reliable and rugged?
Would it work for what I need it?
Are there any tips to install it?

Thanks again

I owned an Interphase unit in the past and it held up splendidly for 6 very hard years before dying during an offseason. I would not hesitate to by another if they made a GPS combo.

PS I just bought a 22 Dauntless. Two questions: (1) How does yours perform and (2)which engine did you put on it?
