Quite a few people are using the Garmin Etrex, I however like the Foretrex 101, small and very light.

In my MV, I use the Garmin Geko...used the 301 until it went for a swim, now I use a 101. I think a GPS is indispensable when tuning a boat for a race. You probably won't notice a difference of a MPH or so visually, but the GPS will pick it up and you will know if your tuning changes are helping, or hurting.

The Geko is about 3.1 oz with batteries in it.

Etrex = 5.3 oz
Foretrex = 2.75 oz

I could not have said it better.

I also use a Geko - 201 and love it. I've used it in anything 22" - 46"
Just make sure you strap the GPS in well so it does not go for a dive when your boat flips, blows over ect.
