A unit that has the ability to use alkaline power as a backup is a good idea as the NiCad pack will be dead when you need it per Murphy. A 12V DC charger is a good idea too as it will allow you to charge the unit on the boat. Check out the Standard Horizon models. My HX 350 came with NiCad and alkaline packs plus both 110 VAC and 12 VDC chargers. Also get a model that is rated IPX7 (intermittently submersible) if water resisitance is important (Murphy again!).
