    Default hummingbird or garmin? any advise?

    Got all the good stuff figured out on my big boat, but am looking for a depth/fish finder for my open skiff.
    Skiff is an open Klamth, that we use in rivers, lakes, and to do a little trolling with in the inlet.
    I am undecided on a cheap finder for this boat. transducer will be mounted on a liftable flat bar on the back of the transom, as the boat is beached a lot.
    obviously needs to be waterproof (most are)
    I have been looking at the garmin echo 200 and the hummingbird piranhamax176, anyone that has one and might be willing to share there thoughs?

    thanks

    Garmin without a second thought.
    I have such a hard time trying to decide which outdoor activity to do every chance I get!! Living in AK is a mental challenge
