Thank you for this link. I was not aware there was such a service which I think is/will be very worth while.

Also, it is wise to check the date of one's batteries and one's Beacon Registrations to ensure all are up-to-date. I just did so and, to my chagrin, realized the registration of my PLB 100, used on our dinghy and 12' sailing dinghy was out of date (now corrected!).

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
