Chartplotter - Look at the new Garmin 5000 series touch screens. The 5212 is amazing. The 5208 is the 8" version which may fit your boat better.
Fish Finder - Furuno 585 and a good transducer. Go to airmar.com to see what is available for an aluminum hull. You could also get a garmin FF if you dont want separate units. Furuno makes a better FF though.
VHF - Icom 422 is a bargain. Digital 529 antenna.
Radar - Garmin if you must have the radar overlay the chartplotter. For separate units, Furuno or Raymarine. A 4kw dome is fine for most people. If you want to blow some extra money and look cool, get a 6kw open array.
Autopilot - No question, TR-1 Gladiator. Simrad is a distant second.
Thats about 12 grand. Installation will be a couple more.
Have fun shopping.
