Handheld CB radios are not widely available anymore since OFCOM released the UHF 446 PMR frequencies. A well known store have a twin pack of Motorola's for 25 at the moment and a quad pack of Binatone for less than 60.
Although the UHF 446 PMR system has only 8 channels, each channel can be split into sub-channels (using CCS tones) so only radio's set to a partic channel AND sub channel will contact each other.

Again these are public frequencies that anyone with similar kit can listen in or even talk back to you, if you want someting a bit more secure, it gets expensive.

Andy i hate to break it to you don't have a rib so therefor you don't need a two way. Just use your VHF to contact people. And why do you need bulk? Its not like your working on voyager doing ship to ship transfers of your crew.

I'd have a sniff around some of the companies that hire kit into the North Sea Intervention industry, They turn there stock over quite quickly as it's paid for within a few months of hire and it's always good stuff Motorola or Standard Horizon etc

http://www.netltd.co.uk/radiohires.html would be one such company
