You will need the tripod, but "too strong" is a relative term and depends on what you want to see. These binoculars should make it possible to identify people's faces at a half a mile.

I use mine for viewing the skies in the backyard, I doubt if they'd be too strong. For me the price was right and wish they were a little stronger than they are , good luck & wish I had boats to look at

No they are really good as long as you do have a tripod
They are just so big and heavy.
I watch seabirds from the shore about half a mile away and they are really good for the money

I bought these for my husband to view boats in the bay from our condo, he can clearly see at half a mile and further. I would say that they are not too strong.

I think the 20x80 SkyMaster would be just fine. Certainly not too strong.

No, I would think they'd work great. Just be aware that mine needed to be adjusted slightly before I could get a good picture.

If a boat is one half mile away (2640 feet) then at 20x the boats would appear to be 132 feet away.
