An alternative idea would be to get a really small handheld, that would fit on my belt without getting in the way (or inside the life jacket). It wouldn't have GPS and DSC, but it'd be better than nothing...

Any thoughts?

I have it and use the belt clip when i am single handed and have gotten use to it

His fastest rescues even IF a ERIB got him there went down with this type of radio as there are still big issues with finding you in that about there zone in the dark and bigger seas
