Stiener Commander V w/ compass, great optics, big and clumsy. If you are dead set on binocs, they have done well for me and I like em; however I have always wanted to use a KVH DataScope. I believe they are 7x30 with electronic compass. If anyone has any experience with these, perhapse they could offer this as an option. I have used the image stabilized units and find they are not worth the money, the stiener sport focus and bright optics were the most important to me (mostly used to identify bouy id's and glassing the horizon for other vessels). I also have an old Nikon Action 8x30 which gets a lot of use due to its feel in my wifes hands and weight around her neck. Hope this helps.
