I generally wear a handheld on my belt or clipped in my pocket. Both to monitor and in case I fall overboard. Yes, I do wear an inflatable, but I'm usually sailing with family or friends who couldn't handle a MOB. I do show them all how to call on 16 and I want to be self sufficient in calling for help. Another reason I hope my fellow boaters are monitoring 16!
