Re: EPIRB or PLB for coastal cruising

Holy cow! I've been looking at some of the different PLB's and they're almost a disposable product with the cost of a five year battery replacement. Looks like ACR is following the Volvo business model. Sell the product cheap, then ding 'em later for the parts/service.
