how important is a floating PLB?
I was just at the Boston boat show today and I discovered the ACR ResQLink PLB. They have a floating version and a non-floating version (with optional floatation pouch). Both are waterproof. The floating one is slightly larger and more expensive. Do you think it's worth it to get the floating one? What's the use case for floating, if it's going to be attached to my PFD? I'm pretty sure I want one of these units, but if anyone has any other suggestions on other good, tiny PLBs, I'd love to hear them. Thanks!
