I have the 10, which is just a larger screen. You will be just fine if you use a 50 kHz transducer. I switched to an Airmar 'ducer and I really like the change, not that the HST-WSBL that the unit shipped with was any slouch.

Are the fish you seek on the bottom at 800 feet? Or, suspended?

I have a form I developed that I'll send you when you're ready. It can really help with the manual settings.
