Default Smallest handheld VHF?

Who makes the smallest waterproof handheld marine VHF these days? I am not looking for anything too powerful as this will be used within 1 mile of shore at all times.

Thx

I believe it is still the Icom M88. I have had one for four years or so, and use it heavily. Very reliable and good performance.

The Icom M88 is pretty small and reliable. the new Icom M24 is a little larger but less expensive floats, and flashes when dropped in the water. they are always running mail in rebates as well.

I'd have to say that even with the extra inch or so in length, that M24 looks like the deal for your use.
