3. DSC VHF radio
I carry 1 & 2 on my person at all times at sea, and would sure like to have less bulk and weight.
Actually Dockhead, this should be a relatively simple device to build (all the elements are well known)
If you know a really competent electronics engineer
or guru, he should be able to make a prototype without much ado.
Thereafter - you just nedd to patent it and then either go peddle it to one of the big manufacturers or start your own company
I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by
