I guess that makes it waterproof. Since it's inside the boat, it doesn't matter that much.

I can't find the specs for the remote mic, but it's probably the same or better.
Standard Horizon's web site kinda sucks. Even a search wouldn't turn up the CMP25. But one of the on-line seller's pages asserts "Submersible (3 ft for 30 min.)"

And even less at my favourite marine electronics place: Hodge's Marine Electronics .

It is highly critical--esp. in a high-noise or stressful environment. Audio quality can make all the difference between understanding (correctly) and not.

Thanks for re-mentioning this one, Barry. Somehow I missed it on the first go. (I recall seeing and reading your comments, but they failed to register, somehow.)
