I have to make a decision on what to purchase for the new Hobie and since they come ready to accept Lowrance transducers, I suspect that I will stay with that brand; although I've been a Garmin guy forever. Since I will be fishing coastal and what to mark or find tog structure a GPS is a must, so now it's between the Elite-4 Chirp finder/gps or spend a couple hundred more to get the larger 5" display on teh Elite-5. If I had unlimited funds, it would be the HDS-7 with touch screen, but I've already blown my budget by going Hobie.

Also curious what life vest most find the most comfortable, I'm leaning towards the Hobie mirage PFD or the Edge both which look somewhat comfortable and seems to be designed for the seat/kayak.

Then it's footwear, since I'm generally not stepping off a float and into a center console any longer, are most purchasing neoprene booties? I would think waders could be an option in colder weather and in the summer my Keen H2O's will be my go to, but colder water means waterproof something.
