        Comments about HX100 2.5W Floating Handheld VHF Twin Pack:

        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.

          Prompt delivery. Arrived in perfect condition.
