Re: EPIRB or PLB for coastal cruising

I also bought the ACR 375 but I got the older, non-buoyant model. It's a little smaller, which means I'll wear it. Nonbuoyant so I have to be sure it's tethered to me. I put it in a case which attaches to my vest/harness. The only thing I don't like about the design is no integral attachment method to wear it. The firefly strobe has built in rings so you can attach it to your vest or body- the PLB doesn't, which I think is an oversight.
