    Thanks Greg
    
    I've always been impressed with the performance of Uniden radios I own(ed).
    
    The MHS125 floatable looks interesting as well as I hope to get back to
    Hobie sailing/racing soon.  Drawback is buttons are not backlighted, so
    operation problematic in a night-time emergency.
    
    As a Lake Michigan sailor now (never more than 45 miles from a sandwich)
    one is usually within VHF range of the shore/Coast Guard with a tall,
    low-gain stick. Also commercial traffic that often uses the "tonnage
    wins" right-of-way rule in open waters. Many prudent sailors have two
    permanent VHF units--one as a backup--as well as a handheld.
