Re: Man over board

If the water isn't cold enough to kill you, wearing an inflatable pfd with a gps enabled vhf radio clipped to it may save your life, if you go over. You can call for help yourself and identify your position. These radios are available for a couple hundred bucks.

However, staying on the boat should be priority #1.

Jeanneau 54DS

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
