Default Furuno transducer options

I have an older vx2 unit with an BFF-1 on my 28' McKee. It currently has an unknown transom mounted transducer. I am looking to go to a thru hull and am stuck deciding if I should go with a b60 or if it's worth going to a b164. Boat spends most time in Chesapeake bay but will spend some time offshore in the mid Atlantic canyons trolling for tuna. Any opinions?

The single element 600 watt B60 will be more than adequate for the Chesapeake.
The 3 element 1 kw B164 will give you added sensitivity and more depth capability for your canyon trolling.

It may come down to what percentage you will be doing for each .
