One other thing, most epirbs float and auto-activate...the PLBs need to be turned on to activate, thus suggested to attach to your PFD...
other wise go with the Epirb
PLB coastal and nearer, when someone on the contact list you provide when registered, knows you, your boat and your plans.
Epirb anywhere else you go and especially if you don't leave plans with anyone, for sure if you are offshore or extended cruise.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
