Default Binoculars - what do you use ?

I am going to get a pair of binoculars to take out on the boat. What do you use and why do you like them. I'm thinking the 10 X 50 is what I am leaning towards. Is this too much magnification on a rocking boat ? I am wanting them to be able to see further to spot birds feeding or weed mats that I may miss on the way out or in.

I have a pair of Vortex binoculars and have been extremely impressed with them. So impressed that I bought a scope for my rifle.

Default If you can...

The 8x50 are easier and more generally usefull. The 10 x are helpful sometimes but also in a stand...

I use cannon with image stabilization. The image stabilization helps a bit on the boat.
