I don't think I want to put a fix mounted unit on the runabout. (Bayliner 185 i/o)

I think it would be in the way for the little time I would use it. I could make it quick power connect and keep it stashed I guess. I only do the Lake Superior thing once a year.

I see the power between fix mount 25 watt and handheld 5 watt is huge.

Of course the one time you need it YOU NEED IT.

How many of you boaters have a marine band radio for your boat?


I have recently been using my boat on different waters. Last summer we went to the Apostle Islands. Took the 19 ft glass boat on the big lake. We were with another couple with a similar boat. He had a radio. I never thought about it before. We went 80 miles one day. Went from Bayfield to the caves, around some islands and back. Thought I don't need a radio. We had two boats, phones and people all around.

They went home a day before us. We got adventurous and went to the open water side of Madeline island. It was wavier on that side, saw an "oar boat" in the distance, noticed there was no other boats in site. Checked phone .... no signal and no radio. We decided to get back to areas closer to shore. Thought.... I need a radio!

I looked at prices and they are all over the place.

Talked to other boaters back home, noone has radios. I get it don't need a radio when the problem around here is there are too many boats on the water.

We have also taken the boat from Ft Snelling to Prescot and further down the river. Was thinking with all the big boats traffic in some areas and no boats in others plus lock & damn traffic I should get a radio.

Do folks who are on Mille Lacs often have one?

So who has a marine band radio?
Why do you have one?
What do you have? Portable "walkie talkie" size or car stereo sized one.
What would you do differently regard what you have?

The Westinghouse got a best buy from Consumer reports. I emailed them to ask how many hours they are designed to run. They took 2 months to respond and said they have no such rating.

The Hondas reportedly have a design life of 20k hours.

I did a lot of research via the RV community forms. They range from preppers to full time off grid RV users. One thing they brought up is if or when you need parts and or repair is there a service center near. One example was 0 for Yamaha and 3 for Honda in one town. Most of them use Honda with Yamaha in a far less popular 2nd.

Part of price is piece of mind, convenience as well as cost of ownership.

If it needs repair and you have to ship it away for 3 weeks are you ok with that?

Hopefully a lot of melting will occur this week. On the bright side there shouldn't be any ticks out yet.

I was wrong...looks like Princeton got 10.5 I think you should still be ok for turkeys.


I am on a farm sitting by the field and a swamp. It should be good. Plus I think the neighbor feeds them.

I never thought I would need snowshoes for Turkey hunting.

Anyone from the Princeton area? I am wondering how much snow you got.

I am supposed to go Turkey hunting this weekend.
