Hello,
I am looking for a fish finder for a 62ft wooden fishing boat which is now under construction. I am new to this, so I do not know where to start. The estimated weight of the boat would be around 120,000Ib and would be operating at the depth of 200-250ft. I want a system that would be easy to use in the tropic waters of West Africa, Ghana to be precise. A friend recommended a Humminbird, but when I asked him about the model that would suit my application he could not tell me.

I understand echo sounder and the fish finder work on the same principle. If that is the case, is it necessary to purchase both systems.

Thanking you in advance for your comments and recommendations.
