Hi there WF45, please don't take offence but this site is not Consumer Reports --

Fishfinders actually have little to do with the care and feeding of Boston Whalers, plus this is the PERFORMANCE topic section which has nothing to do what so ever with FISHFINDERS.

That said, here pull up this thread from the General Topic area -- lots of post and opinions enjoy --

I think we are pretty far afield with this topic. Performance should be in regard to the hull/engine/prop/trailer and the combination of them.

I THINK THE FURUNO 582 LCD SCREEN IS TIGHT. IT HAS A DUAL GAIN AND A TRUE 500 MHZ FREQ. iT FINDS WRECKS GOING ABOUT 35 KNOTS.

Jimh, why would the trailer be any more relevant to performance than a fish finder for a boat used for fishing?

Is bigz the associate webmaster?

thanks
Dave

As a subject for discussion in "Performance" I think trailers are more germane than fishfinders. According to a poll we took, about 90% of Whalers are trailer-sailed. Virtually every Whaler has a trailer.

There are several aspects of the Whaler hull that require specific trailer designs. It is important to have the proper trailer.

A well set-up trailer that easily transports, launches, recovers, and stores you Whaler is essential to proper "performance."

Trailers are adaptable for modification, improvement, re-fitting, and repair.

Let's look at the question, "What is the best fishfinders [sic] on the market?"

This is a very broad question. There are no criterea for judgement. Are we discussing best price, best performance? What depth of water? Salt or Fresh? Fishfinders don't enhance the performance of the boat, that is they don't make it run faster, use less fuel, become easier to operate, etc.

People visit the forum because, in most cases, it provides a high ratio of on-topic content to off-topic clutter. The fundamental goal of the website has been to collect and distribute high information-content, on-topic material on the various subjects.

As for bigz, he is a very valuable contributor and I think his comments are on target here.
