Default New little digital waterproof camera for boatingf season

I just purchased a Minolta 720sw before we went to Mexico on a week long trip. This camera preformed flawlessly, it is so small it fits right in a swiming suit pocket. We took it to the pool, beach, waterpark. The battery life is great, packed with features including in camera editing, and a slideshow (with music) just plug it in the tv. I am replacing a bulky Minolta camedia c700. I had my reservations, but I am very happy I went with this one. It is waterproof to 10 feet and shockproof from 5 foot drop. (it is a great boat camera)

I did a search, Minolta makes a 720 sw (shock/water proof) believe it or not, about $357 was the cheapest I saw, did you pay less than this, if so where, my old Canon S20 is too big now and the batteries are shot and that alone is $150 for two, that much more and I have a new thin one with twice the MP, movie stuff and all the cool new stuff. Heck this Canon was over $700 back in 2000, it takes great pics still but is so big and the battery thing is a real pain. Here is a pic I took with it.
