Does anyone carry one on their boat...??? Always being told I should have one....
Sometimes more than others, or so I hear.We also use the handheld for the person backing in the truck.
What are the channels to use....??? for emergencies, sea tow....???I have always carried a handheld with extra batteries. I like the kind that are rechargable as and also accept AA batteries. They are only around 75 bucks and a wise accessory to have in case of emergency. You may have to call Sea Tow or air evac or ???? Could save a life. Its always good to be prepared. I use the sealable plastic "shoe box" type totes to hold some emergency gear. First aid kit, flashlight,trash bags, emergency sunblock(spare) knife, basic drugs, spare bimini pins, xtra sunglasses for the next time I dive in with them. I also carry a tool kit and small ratchet set.
It is illegal to that. Only supposed to use them on the water. Marinas and such have a special license. Probably not a big issue if your stuff low powered.We carry two,, a fixed mount as well as a hand held. It has come in handy a couple of times. We also use the handheld for the person backing in the truck.
