Finding a quality sonar unit that runs on AA batteries is going to be a problem. As Steve points out, once you step up to a 12 volt unit, you add weight, and lose simplicity.

Have you tried stabilizing the Fishin' Buddy with bungee straps. Attaching the straps at the head of the unit, and at the bottom of the shaft should keep the unit stable when moving. Not sure this is an option for you, but I mount my Fishin' Buddy close to the oar lock. The Buddy handle touches the lock when I'm moving, and that helps stabilize the unit. I use a trolling motor on my pontoon, so I don't have to worry about clearance from the unit to the oars.
