I'd go with a larger model Garmin, rather than the 276, which has a rather small screen. I would suggest the 298, 398, or 498 units instead.
The main difference is what set of charts, if any, is pre-loaded onto the unit. The 398 should be all the US freshwater info, the 498, should be coastal saltwater. The 298 IIRC uses Bluechart software, rather than being pre-loaded.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
