Wow, wanted to get out this weekend and forecast changing and not for the better but not a 100% washout. OK, just getting started on getting all the gear I might need but can I get a recommendation on a little weather radio, preferably Amazon-supported (I have "Prime" and can have it in time for the weekend if i act fast).
Otherwise where I'm staying I can watch the TV new forecast and hope for the best.

Agree that a Marine VHF|

is the way to go rather than just a weather radio.

Ordered. Hopefully I can power-through how to use it once arrived, such as selecting frequencies, etc. OK, a little more than I anticipated but I guess anything beats becoming a "news item".

Showed up yesterday, and I charged it, have not started reading the owner's manual. My only complaint so far is it feel like I need to break out the impact wrench to get it un-clicked form the charging station.

CH 67 is commercial|

Technically Channel 67 is for commercial traffic as opposed to non-commercial/recreational traffic. Just to be OCD about stuff.

Well, we got back from a week on Virginia's Lake Anna, learning the kayak. The weather that had high storm chance % for four days turned out to be drizzle the first night and then beautifully clear the rest of the week.

next time you go out, try tethering it to your pfd (in a pocket on a D ring) or somewhere on your person (arm or back shoulder. If you're ever in the water and separated from your boat it comes in handy.
