VHF Mounting

Just bought a hand held VHF mostly for use on my RIB and wondered if anyone has a good way of locating it on the consol?

I clip it to my lifejacket (mine's waterproof).

That way if I go in, I can still yell for help.

I have mine on me at all times (see Nos's comment). Other than that velcro is good; I use it for my h/h GPS on my jet ski.

Thanks all. That gives me a few ideas to play with. I am thinking along the lines of Velcro/bungee/a strap or whatever at the moment.

.....and it looks great too, if you re-name the boat "Domestos" or "Harpic" it will even look as if you had it custom made
