Re: EPIRB or PLB for coastal cruising
I respectfully disagree. While battery life is one difference, the primary difference is whether the unit operates floating on its own, or whether it must be held above water/attached to a person.
By the way, older ACR ResQLink products have been COSPAS-SARSAT approved. This is a relatively new PLB model.
