OOPS batteries in the GPS and EPIRB are bad, no one knows where I am and I don't know where I am....unless of course I also include a sextant....just a basic plastic one (actually called a "life boat sextant", will be accurate enough. Hand held VHF?....vhf is basically line of sight.....how about a handheld SSB. Another thing would be a solar battery charger. A life raft is pretty close to the water how about a parabolic kite w/ flags.
