No to dis anyone, but having sailed the East Coast
here are my recommendations.
If yoiu have to have one - a 7-20 x50 from most any sporting good store.
Next: a 10 x 50 (a local camera
shop was selling 2 for $50. and they were really good. Being an amateur astronomer I know that only a few companies in the world make the lenses that many buy and install in their binoc's. In other words, you can get some really good stuff IF yiu know how to find it. Now why 10x50? Most of the time you need the magnification to see anything, and MOST of the time the boat is stable enough to use the magnification. Then there is the possibility of having two pairs, a 10x50 and a 7-20x50.
And if you are really wealthy, get the image stabalization, no question they are worth the money
. But get a 10x50 image stabalization pair.
I havge both 7x35 and 10x50 and everyone waits for the 10x50.
