Re: VHF Radio in the cockpit
[QUOTE]Honestly, in the four seasons I've had this vessel, I've used it once in a non-emergency. Cell phones seem to be our primary means of communication now.
"Cell phones seem to be our primary means of communication now".If you need help, with a cell phone only one person will hear you, with the VHF anyone within the range of the radio can hear you. They can come to help you or relay a message. Cell phones can't. My 2 cents worth.
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."~Mark Twain
