I don't need no stinkin windshield. Hey, what can I say......it's Florida. I feel for you guys in Jackets and complete enclosures. You probably notice no VHF antenna or all around light on top. Only use handheld VHF and the all around is a removable battery powered portable LED along with the bow nav light. trying to minimize critical gear and exposure failure. What about emergencies you say. Well for that only one thing makes sense. GPS locating EPIRB. Well worth the coin.
