Default VHF Channels Monitored

I can never remember who's listening to what channels, so hopefully this turns into a good list. If there's good feedback I'll come back and edit this first post into some semblance of organization (not my strong suit, but I'll try!)

Cuttyhunk Harbormaster: 09
Tripp's Westport: 09
Falmouth harbormaster 09 & 16

There are several apps that will tell you this. The active captain website used to be very good, then Garmin.

Many chartplotters will also tell you what channels marine businesses like marinas and fuel docks monitor.

Why create a list when its all out there?

i usually look at a) website, b) google (i.e. cuttyhunk harbormaster vhf), c) reference activecaptain free map, d) dockwa / marinas.com / etc

should take you seconds to get info when you need it as long as you have a cell phone with internet....

Oaks Bluff Launch 77
Edgartown Launch 68
Nantucket Harbor Master 14
McDougals Automated Radio Check is 28

But I prefer long, drawn out, inane, conversations about dinner reservations on 16. (Kidding just kidding)

The Dockwa site has them all....

Our radio scrolls through 9 and 16 because most of the marinas near us and the CG use those. And 69 because our friends have the sense of humor of 12 year old boys and use that for communication.

nah....I should have said “because we all have the sense of humor of 12 year old boys”. Gotta love good friends who keep you laughing.
