You are wise to stick to lower powers, because above 8X in a kaynoe is extremely hard to hold still enough to see anything.
I got a pair of Bushnell H20 8x25s last year and I'm very happy with them. They are not the world's best optics, but they are tough as horseshoes, waterproof, cheap, and good enough for my needs afloat. Under or about $50 in most places.
I'd cry crocogator tears if I dropped my Zeiss 8x40s overboard. I'd shrug if I dropped these Bushnells.
