Cool At the risk of

getting jumped all over again..

I was not suggesting a means or a desire of checking in every day with mommy...or averting disaster with there use.

Sans the SSB... A sat phone ( which can be rented ) requires zero on board current draw and zero extra cost if not used. But if you are overdue by an extended time, as in this case, One simple call...ONE.. to aleart The coasties as to whats up as in this situation the need to sail slow ( I would carry extra wire before a sat phone ) there would have been no multiple PAn PAN day in and day out.

I dont like that much publicity but whatever blows your skirt up.
