Re: Choosing/spec'ing VHF radio?
UPDATE: my mistake - br3nt is right. The MMSI is associated with the INDIVIDUAL and not the vessel, as I indicated in my previous post. The MMSI database entry, however, does identify the vessel, hailing port and emergency points of contact.
So, while you can edit the MMSI Database to indicate that you and your MMSI registered radio are changing vessels, it still seems like a pain to have to do this if you go sailing on a friend's boat, and want to bring your handheld VHF.
I hope this helps.
Right - instead of leaving a MMSI radio when you sell a boat, you MUST take it with you, or put up with the risk that the new owner will abuse it.
Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
