    A CB is not a VHF radio; totally completely different. If you're on a lake I wouldn't worry about it much. I boat on several lakes, the largest being around 25,000 acres. I'd say less than 10% of boats have a VHF. I've listened on mine and very rarely hear anything. Not that it's a bad idea to have one but there have to be other people around listening for it to be of any use.

        Thank you for those links on the VHF radio talks. I haven't had much time to research on them.
        Working on my first boat, a 16' 1981 Glastron HPV165 powered by a Force 125 outboard. located in Lake County, Florida.

          FWIW; the two marinas I use have been around longer than me.(73 plus). They both have CB radios on 24hrs. They have a sign posting what channel they monitor. I have 2 Cobra WT rechargeables (1 for the truck;1 for the boat). Not to disagree with G A; but they are old school; and its nice to know you are not alone. Sorry Mr. G A
