Too many to count :-)
Actually, depending on the day, you might find three VHF
handhelds (marine, ham, aviation), two fixed VHF
(marine and ham/marine), a satphone, two fixed HF ham transceivers, one fixed marine
HF/SSB transceiver, one HF backpack transceiver, a 406 EPIRB
, two 121.5 EPIRBs (for homing beacon use only), signal flags
, flares, and a signaling lamp.
I used to carry a homing pidgeon, but he crapped all over the decks :-)
Just call me paranoid,
