The only reason I'm pretty sure that Standard Horizon took over the manufacturing for West Marine is that WM's new Vh-f250
has a lot of the same features and setup as the SH HX471
. None of the other manufacturer's, at least to my knowledge, make a handheld that works both in FRS and VHF except for SH.
The real major difference is the lack of the "strobe" LED that is on most of the SH handsets.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
