Default VHF Recommendation

I need to get a VHF for my 20' center console and I'm hoping someone can give me a recommendation. My main criteria is that it's as small as possible because I don't have much room in my console. Other than that, I'd like something reliable with decent range. It will need to be water resistant because my boat is small and take a lot of spray from time to time (I do have a T top). I don't go off shore much but I plan on using a decent antenna because hopefully I'll be 5 - 10 miles out once in a while.

I appreciate any recommendations for a small reliable VHF. Thanks!

I have a Cobra MRF75B. Its got the DSC feature and the range is quite good. The speaker is in the microphone and I couldn't hear it very well so I installed an external speaker and that made a world of difference.
Its small and compact and waterproof. Very good VHF radio.
