And along with the HDS 12 you may also look at the Simrad NSS9evo2.

The SonicHub is very popular and a good choice.
I'd kind of like to buy the 12'' display because I think I will be better able to see it from the bow of the boat: Simrad is more expensive in this regard. I know you get CHIRP with the Simrad units, but you have to go out 25 -30 miles to even find a spot that might be >150' deep, and usually further... I'm only buying a 21' bay boat here. My research indicates that CHIRP improves resolution at much greater depths. Because of this, I'm less inclined to make the additional investment in CHIRP. But... let me know if I am on the wrong track here. Definitely willing to reconsider.
