Dennis, on Jul 23, 2012 asked:

We own a 2003 Boston Whaler Montauk 170 and are looking to purchase a VHF radio. We will not be cruising the open ocean until we get more experience, and we will be sticking close to Vancouver for now. We understand the range of a handheld is less than a fixed-mount. Keeping that and our cruising area in mind, our first question is: would you suggest a handheld or fixed-mount? We would also like to keep the cost of the radio to under $200.00. For fixed-mount, we were looking at the Standard Horizon GX1600. We understand it can be wired to GPS system in order to display GPS information, but is this really necessary? We already own a Garmin GPSMAP 76Cx. Please suggest which type of radio we should purchase, and suggest a few models to choose from.

I have a new Standard Horizon GX-2100 VHF Radio installed on my boat. My old "waterproof" radio died after getting too wet, so I am always worried about rain or sea spray getting on my new radio. How do I know my new radio will fare better then my old one?
