Re: Delorme inreach

I just came back from crewing on a delivery from Beaufort, NC to St. Martin. I used my InReach to stay in frequent contact with wife and friends. It worked great and kept the wife from worrying to death. Emails have a 160 character limit. You can also send position/track updates to Facebook and friends. The tracking feature can be set to different intervals up to 4 hrs. The only negative I found was that the device is power hungry so make sure you bring enough batteries.
