Raymarine ES128 MFD

I'm getting serious about buying 2 Raymarine ES MFDs. One ES127 & one ES128 with CHIRP Down Vision. Also, an EV200 Auto Pilot. Does anyone on the Forum have any real world experience with these models?

I'm also looking at the eS128. My only concern is the Downvision working on my boat with a long keel down the center. I'm thinking the keel will block some of the down vision's viewing angle. This shouldn't be a problem on your boat.

I'm sure it won't as I have hardly any keel at all! The Tecs just finished the install today except for the transducer for the Down Vision. That will happen on Thursday.
