And most don't float.
I want the remote more for the ability to be able to clearly hear the radio from the cockpit than anything else. I considered a hand-held, but that doesn't give you the range of the fixed radio, with its antenna advantage; you have to deal with re-charging, and there's always the distinct possibility of the radio going ker-plunk. Yeah, I know: They allegedly float. Fat lot of good that'll do you in heavy air and seas. Hell, just retrieving a cap or a PFD is tricky enough, but a small, hand-held radio? No thanks.

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.
