Re: Do I Need an EPIRB?
Yes. I will buy a Garmin 18x GPS and hardwire it to the VHF (I see now that this wasn't clear in my post). It should serve as a backup GPS if I program a waypoint for the harbor entrance and maybe my mooring. Even without that, it will deliver latt & long; I always have paper charts.
I worry about being over reliant on the netbook because, well, Windows.
The VHF will also give me SOG and COG; I'll have to put on my glasses to see it...
