I like my SH HX751 but if I were in the market again I'd get the 851.

The strongest feature is the ability to send a DSC distress call, WITH your GPS position, at the touch of a button. It seems like great insurance against going overboard when single handed. (provided you're carrying it!)

Would second the comments about SH's customer service, they are really good.
