I'm looking at finally getting some new electronics for my boat and need some advice on the transducer set up.
Firstly I'm looking at going a furuno 587 sounder with a Simrad nss9 for the gps. Furuno have a great reputation so thought this was the way to go and the reason for the Simrad gps is due to them being compatible for mercury engines and the smartcraft gauges.
With the new setup I will be using it anywhere from 10m of water for jewfish/kingfish, 50m for snapper/kingfish and browns mountain for blue eye cod and tuna/marlin. I was thinking of running 2 transducers, a 1kw wetbox and a 600 transom mount. I want to do this so I can fish a variety of depths and not spook fish with the 1kw transducer. Can anyone suggest if this is a good idea or a bad one and any suggestions on what transducers to use?
I am totally new to the serious electronic side of things so any help would be appreciated.
