SSBs seem to be pretty archaic. VHF radios tend to take up less space and have a very good range. I am in the Coast Guard and we have an SSB on board our boat that NEVER gets used. We only ever use the VHF. If you are sticking to the San Juans, there are plenty of USCG assets in the area that it is pretty covered. I was stationed in Neah Bay at the mouth of the Juan De Fuca and we would hear transmissions being made all the way from Whidbey Island to Coos Bay, OR.

Although you could always keep it as a back up if need be.
