Raymarine VHF

Looking for a Ray 215 VHF. Just need the handset but will purchase the entire unit if necessary.

You probably have the crumbling cord problem, like me. I have searched but was unable to find any that don't have the same problem. It is a known issue. I even tried splicing in a new cord at the plug end but the wires are so tiny and delicate that I gave up that idea. If you come up with a solution, let me know.

Google Raymarine in Nashua

Ask them if they still repair them. Older posts suggest they did in the past

I doubt they will agree to repair as they stopped offering the replacement cord a few yrs back.
I think I got one of the last and have seen others ask but no go.
Doesnt hurt to ask. Other issue is none of the new models have a similar cut out.

Raymarine will no longer refurbish cable. Suggest scrapping of crumbling coating and spray several coats of liquid wire. Find a grey or black cloth string tie pouch and lay wire/ cable in bag and hang on consule. Mine works fine and cosmetically makes a little improvement.

Unfortunately the previous owner of the boat tossed the mic and cord before selling the boat to me. I have a remote handset at the lower helm that works just fine so I know the radio is good. I was hoping to find a used mic so I can take my time figuring out what I want for a radio. If I don't find one I'll just bite the bullet and replace the VHF and remote handset.

My mic cord , not Raymarine, became "gooey". Probably from Deet or some sun protectant.
The radio was at least 10 years old, still worked fine. I bought a new one for about $150 and it was a great purchase. Electronics, like everything else have come a long way in 10 years.

It was basically a "plug and play" swap. Lots of very nice new features!

Longship Marine in Poulsbo, WA had mine for sale. Good condition. You would have to check if they still have it. 360-779-2378.

So I went ahead and purchased a new VHF radio, Standard Horizon GX2000. Thanks for all the replies. If anyone needs a Raymarine 215 or the remote handset let me know.

How is the insulation on the remote handset? If in good shape, I would be interested in it.

The cord had a couple of cracks but in overall good shape. I can send a photo next time I go down to the boat if you get me your e-mail.

Capt Mike,

Is this the item you are talking about?

If so, how much do you want for it?

That is the same remote handset. It is still installed on the boat and it may be some time before I remove it, like mid-April when the cover comes off (weather permitting). I don't want to give it away until I have an up and running replacement. I don't know what it is worth. If you want it make me an offer and pay for the shipping.
