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.
