Re: Our first bareboat charter BVI 2014

I've found it immensely helpful to use a pair of FRS walkie-talkies for coordination between the helm and the bow during anchoring or picking up a mooring. I took my sister and her family on a week-long bareboat charter using a Beneteau 393 and the radio made talking my sister through setting the anchor, something she had never done before, far more productive and successful. Something that wouldn't have happened if we had had to shout at each other. :-)
