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just did so and, to my chagrin, realized the registration of my PLB 100, used on our dinghy and 12' sailing dinghy was out of date (now corrected!).

FWIW...
Good you caught up

Funny I am anal about registration dates warrenty dates.

I have a "tickler" file on my computer which is basically a spreadsheet with warrenty registration dates of everything I have/ buy includes cars, boats Epirbs, Norton etc

I populate it when I buy something new with a renewable date. I try and look at the file every month to see whats comming as there is no wat I could ever remeber to keep this straight in my mind...especially as I age.
