  9. VHF radio

    Any one have any experience with this brand of radio ? Is it good enough for a emergency if no phone service? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Baofeng-GT-5TP-8W-HP-Tri-Power-Dual-PTT-136-174-400-520-MHz-Ham-Walkie-Talkie-/192205904299?hash=item2cc05d59ab:g:aGEAAOSwq1JZMiCb
  10. Insurance costs

    My boat insurance will be due soon , when she was new ( 3 years ago) I insured it for £120,000 including home contents I know it is not worth that now so as it gets older should you insure it for less or do I keep it insured for the £120.000 as that is what it would probably cost to replace it in the current market thanks in advance
