Re: Choosing/spec'ing VHF radio?

No, no plotter or any other e-device with the possible exception of a Garmin GPS. Failing that, paper charts and depth sounder is it. Mk 1 eyeball, tuned to wx band and a wetted finger in the air .

Still tying to decide which one ta go with; but it appears my best bet for starters is a plain-Jane handheld. Nowhere I'm going to go least for a season or so, will be out of range. No built-in GPS or other system needed. Looking more at battery longevity, variations in power sourcing and alkaline e-pak availability.

Still a month +/- from splash, so there's still time
