Re: Do I Need an EPIRB?

You mean that DSC is not mandatory in the US for pleasure coastal boats? It is on Europe for several years
No its not and they serve a sperate purpose than an EPIRB.

DISC is when you stay with the vessel, and cannot be used once the veseel sinks or has been abdandoned. EPIRB can be used for both.

I would go for a personal EPIRB
