I came across a boat that has no graphs and a rather old TM on it, but it's a good boat and I think its priced fair. If I were to pick this one up (going to look this weekend), what are the best graphs that aren't going to kill my wallet?
Ideally, I'd like to spend about 2k on 2 graphs and mounts, transducers, etc. Is this doable?

Trolling motor? Ultrex because that's what everyone wants right now?

Thanks guys.

I would get the Ultrex 1st!!!!!
Then Lowrance Carbon 12's or 9's. What ever you can afford.
The GOOD batteries.
Then Poles.

I will never have another boat without spot lock trolling motor. That would be my #1 priority.

If that breaks the bank and you cant afford graphs, you can make due with the Navionics webapp on your phone until you can save up.

Look at 2 garmin's. Echomap plus. You could do a 93sv and a 73sv with mounts for around 2k. And the ultrex is a must!

Get a couple used graphs off of here or BBC and for sure the ultrex.
