    old style bailer

    i have a 71 hull with the old style bailer. i'd like to dissect it to ensure its water tight integrity but before i do that, does anyone know where i could obtain the necessary gaskets for it?

    VHF radio Q's

    1) yes on both. 2) a radio reaches everyone within line of sight (assuming they have a radio and it is on), a cell phone reaches only 1 person at a time and you have to know their number. radio works offshore and a cell won't due to lack of towers.
