More than 15 years of radios

The radio on the left is dead after more than five years of salt water paddling and swimming; it costs about $120.  It's predecessor lasted about the same amount of time and cost about $250. 

The radio on the right is the new replacement water proof VHF and it floats! It costs about $60. 

I wonder, will it last 5 years and the replacement cost about $30?

We shall see.  The end of winter is a great time to go through everything attached to your life vest and sort it out.  Take the divers hood out of the pocket and put in sunscreen and bug dope.

If looks like it will be a great spring!!!  Hope you get out there paddling and sailing soon!
