KeelHaulin-

The PFDs on my boat have whistles, strobes and rigging knives attached normally. Also, the chartplotter is isolated from the engine in normal use, so won't shut off when the engine is started.

The best idea is to keep the MOB on the boat in the first place, which one reason I chose a multihull. It is significantly harder to fall off of a boat that is 18' wide and has foot-high bulwarks on the amas, and doesn't heel much past 15˚.

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.
