COMMUNICATION and ENTERTAINMENT

For basic communications, there’s an ICOM M710 SSB and an ICOM M502 VHF at the nav station with a remote ICOM HM-157 VHF at the helm.  There’s also a Standard Horizon HX260S handheld VHF.  To minimize the problem of often less-than-congenial shouted communications between the helms person and the person on the bow dropping the anchor, there’s a Motorola Talkabout 2-way radio headset.

For entertainment, there’s a 19” Samsung TV, a Panasonic am/fm radio with CD player, a portable Memorex IPOD speaker system and a portable tape recorder.
