Default Furuno 588 vs 1971f or Garmin 1042sv

I mostly bottom fish for grouper and snapper in the GOM, N. Florida. I fish usually from 90ft. - 350ft. on average. I currently have a Garmin 94sv - 600watt system with GT-51 tm transducer. I am looking at adding an additional bottom machine to my boat. The Furuno 588, Furuno 1971f or a Garmin 1042sv. My question is which one of these units will be my best option for serious bottom fishing at that depth? Also, which transducer for each of those units ( probably going thru hull). Thanks
