 Probably a Sunday sailor with a brand new boat/no experience and doesn't know the difference between a vhf and cb radio.

Radio Shack offered a weather-resistant CB radio, model 21-1586 "TRC-442"  about 15 years ago.  

It had protective gaskets around the radio and mic, and sealed microphone connector and knobs.

I'm not aware of any other "marine"-worthy CB radios.

If you want a boating radio for safety purposes, get a proper VHF marine radio. Figure it this way - you didn't get the boat for diddly squat, so why get a radio on which your life may depend for the same amount?

Peter:  Very well put!  I've seen this countless times, not only with boats but many other things.  The human mind!  Roll Eyes

Who's to say the boat owner doesn't already have a marine band radio?  Besides, the Marine Band doesn't allow communications with, say, your family waiting for you at your home on the shoreline.  Wouldn't it be wise to stay legal?

I have a TRC-442.

It is a good radio for marine or off road use.
