Re: Rallies Gone Wrong
I agree with you. I'm currently outfitting our boat using the OSR Cat 1 regs...with 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.
Yeah we got stung on the lifelines. We do like to be involved club sailing from time to time and so our perfectly fine coated lifelines had to go
