    Looking into getting a chart plotter/fishfinder for my skiff and I was wondering how much power they draw. I am looking at a ray marine a68. All i have is a small cranking battery I plan on hooking to it. Is the power that the gps is going to draw something I need to consider?

    Draw is minimal. Whether or not it should be considered depends on how long it is on and operating, condition of the battery and reserve when it is time to start engine.
