Re: Do I Need an EPIRB?

Thanks again to all for the info; I had her buy me a Standard Horizon GX2150 VHF;

a Garmin GPS is now on my wishlist;

I'll feel much better about using my Netbook as my chartplotter knowing that my VHF is an 'always on' backup GPS.

If I get mowed down by a merchant ship, I won't have time to press the big red button. I'll learn to live with that.

Ken
