Any of you run side imaging on your yak?
What battery are you using?

Been running SI since 2009. I am totally spoiled by it.

Depending on the draw of the particular unit,
You will probably need a 12ah (+-) if you are fishing all day keeping SI on.
When I put my first HB997 on my standard 7AH would give out after about 6-7 hours. For a while I just linked two batteries paralell and got full/long day.
When I got the 998 my draw went down in spite of the fact the specs did not change. I run a 10 or 12 AH and get a decent full day from it still.

If I am night fishing and sharing batteries with my lights, I have a 20AH.

I run a 12v 12ah most of the time just for the SI. I run a 798 ci si hd. If I am running lights with it I will bump to 18ah.
