              As a follow up to my previous review, I wanted to let you know what I was contacted by Standard Horizon. They sent a Fedex to pick up the radios and then then sent them back to me a week later. Their service was great and the radios now work fine. Thank you.

                    We bought these for our son to use in his Opti, They died before we even got a chance to use them - just 3 weeks after purchase they were dead. The worst part is West Marine would not take them back. They want us to go through Standard Horizon and have washed their hands of the radio stating it's not their problem. I might agree if they were old or abused, but they just stopped working after 3 weeks of sitting.

                      Our son has a small runabout and wanted to each have communication when he's out on the water. These float so perfect to take on a small boat. Wanted a pair w/ charger so this model fir the bill.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Prompt delivery. Arrived in perfect condition.
