Yeah, SPOTs sure are becoming popular, alright...
I'd love to have a nickel for every taxpayer dollar that will be wasted in the years to come on needless SAR missions triggered after a SPOT battery dies, or someone at sea hasn't posted to their blog or Facebook page in more than 24 hours... (grin)
One recent example...
Hey! How funny. That's the boat I used to race on part of my time in Honolulu that lost its mast in 3 knots of wind when one of the rods broke near the spreaders.
When I left it still didn't have a mast. I guess he got it fixed.
