Re: Do I Need an EPIRB?

While I would agree with many who have posted, that you could spend the same amount of money a little better, that's not what's on the table is it? Asking someone to get a few different safety items is a little too much like looking the gift horse in the mouth. If the concerned mother wants to buy you an EPIRB, let her. It'll make her feel better and it has very little downside to have aboard.
