Add an Extra VHF Mic Clip on Your Boats

Make sure your mic is handy with this boat tip.

Extra Mic ClipJim Hendricks / Sport Fishing

Most boat helms have just one clip for the VHF radio mic, but I have two clips on my boat. This gives me the option to stow the mic out of the way or keep it handy. One clip is on the ­opposite side of the helm for those days when I don't feel like talking much on the radio. The other is closer, making the mic more easily accessible from the wheel for times when I need to communicate often. You can buy spare mic clips for as little $2, and they are compact enough to install just about anywhere on the helm with just two small self-tapping screws.
