I highly recommend the Garmin 400C - we use it as a backup to our chart plotter. Full nautical coastal and lake charts (no need to download the area you need), color sunlight readable screen, touch screen, lots of marine info and designed for being on boats. We like ours. There's one on ebay for $265 right now. We looked at the 76Cx and the Oregon and the Oregon is definitely much nicer. It also includes street maps so it can double as a walking or auto GPS (which is why we got it for cruising - real nice to get off the boat and have a handheld GPS to use). Lithium batteries are a must with it though...
