Depends on what your intended use is... If you're looking to talk to people and monitor things like chatter/weather a handheld isn't the best choice. If you're looking for something as a safety precaution then a handheld is suitable and much better than not having anything.

i had an antenna go bad on a 8' antenna that i couldn't talk to another boat about 2 miles away. buut i was still able to contact the cc on  it. a hand held might be ok for a backup but i wouldn't want it as my main radio.
