From the air, a bunch of styrofoam plate are probably far easier to see..
but when I have an MOB, I usually don't have air support helping me find them.
and I'm on the deck of a boat—looking out at the ocean, and a flag on an MOB pole is far more visible, since it actually sticks up above the water's surface.
BTW, Erps... when was the last time you had an aircraft helping you look for an MOB on a daysail??? and how do you afford to have a SAR plane following your boat around all the time???
SD, I think you're wrong that a MOB Pole is easier to see than a bunch of floating plates. And while that's my opinion, I would take the opinion of a SAR pilot over mine on what's easier to see because it would be an opinion based on experiece. Are you a SAR pilot by any chance?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
