Use silicone instead, 'cos it's easier to remove, that way.

I can see you do not like my VHF Radio
Because it's my first RIB I do not know what is good and what is bad.

In that case what you recommend? But please do not tell me the proper VHF Radio must cost more than 200...

There's many choices out there, but I would consider it a fairly important safety item. Both Icom and Standard Horizon have a good reputation. A basic Icom (M401) without DSC would be less than 200 I would have thought.

Contact Malthouse on here (based in Alderney), offers excellent prices on Icom products as well as many other electronics.

RIBase
A basic decent DSC VHF is about 110 -140 squid.

PRSCOMMS Standard Horizon 112

Marine Superstore Icom 130

And certainly deals from Malthouse too.

Cut your console once
