Curious what the range is for that. In doing MOB drills, the boat really moves away from the MOB quickly. FWIW, when alone I wear an inflatable PFD AND a belt-pak inflatable PFD just in case. On the belt is a pouch with the submersible VHF as well as handheld aerial flares and a whistle. Even with all that, the most important thing is to stay on the boat at all costs.
