I installed an Icom IC-M324G aboard my center-console boat in spring 2015, and it has delivered reliable service since, despite its location on the exposed helm of a boat kept in salt water ... not to mention the occasional careless dousing of the washdown hose. Fortunately, this radio is waterproof and offers a feature called AquaQuake that causes the speaker to vibrate and shake off moisture like a Lab after a swim. But there are more reasons to like the IC-M324G than just the great display visibility and its IPX7 submersing ability. For instance, the built-in GPS made installation easier, affording me the safety of DSC without having to fiddle with finicky interface wiring. That same integral GPS can also power AIS. Choose from black or white. $259.99, icomamerica.com
