Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

I agree with you. I'm currently outfitting our boat using the OSR Cat 1 regs...with many deviations. For example, I'm not going to replace our coated lifelines, and we are carrying a PLB in our ditch bag (and also have SPOT, DSC, etc.) but will likely not have an EPIRB or SART-Tx for our trip. I'll also have a coastal life raft - not off-shore. So I'm doing what I think makes sense for us - but using ISAF as the standard.

That's why I like what the C1500 is doing - using the ISAF as a go-by, not just blindly applying them as-is. It's a good approach.
