  1. Hello y'all. I hope everybody had a great Turkey day! Maybe even took their boat out! The time has come for us to replace the VHF radio. I have a Raymarine VHF 215 right now. I am looking for a suitable replacement. VHF218 maybe? Should I stay with Raymarine, if I switch to something else than Raymarine, should I be concern with any of the wiring and connections?

  2. How do I find out my boats MMSI ? my VHF radio will not transmit any DSC calls ( I don't know what DSC is) until it is entered and I have no clue. Any help will be greatly appreciated
  3. I am looking to see if anyone else has the Garmin VHF 300? Looking for feedback from current users, as I can not seem to find any reviews that are worth reading online. What do you like, what don't you like. I have limited helm space for radio mount, looking to stay compact.

Anybody had any exper
  5. Flush mounted the VHF in my 256 and it was pretty easy and smooth as far as projects go. If I could do it again I would have mounted the radio further port and had the mic on the other side. The display is not all that easy to see but it works just fine when you need to use it. The radio itself is OK. Some photos are missing but I will come back and add them in as I get time. First I removed the access panel from the helm locker so I could see what all was back there, if I had clearance and to protect the wiring coming off the breaker. I had plenty of clearance but I wedged a small piece of
  6. Sorry for the duplicate posts, not starting off on the right foot here. Hello all, Sorry for the lengthy post. Most is background on our new boat although I do have a head question. Thanks very much for reading and letting me in the club. I have lurked a bit and found some very valuable information here. In December we purchased a 2005 256 ssi with the Volvo 8.1L GXi, captains call exhaust and arch (270hrs) and have naturally been itching to get on the water. We got lucky here in VA and had some good weather to do a sea trial with a surveyor, Capt. Emory Shover based here in northern VA. High
