Clueless: Handheld Radio advice needed
I would second the Practical Sailor Issue. I went with the Standard Horizon. Safety is first and if you single hand you need a radio that will be work AFTER you fall in the water AND will transmit a reasonable distance AND has a long battery life.
My first hand held was a 100 bucks and it was not water proof and did not transmit worth a damn.
