Plastimo tips & tricks

Handheld VHF : Safety first !

In some countries, it is compulsory to have a handheld VHF on board as integral part of the safety equipment.

Plastimo recommends to have a handheld VHF on board when marina shuttling in an inflatable tender, when powercruising  -even close to shore- on a RIB or dayboat, or as the ultimate easy communication instrument to upgrade your grab bag emergency array.
