Do you know for sure they will work there?

I have never heard of any fine associated with activating an epirb, registered or not, for an actual emergency. Maybe others have better info., but in all the literature I have read with the epirbs I've bought I don't remember anything about a fine. I always thought the registration was more for your benefit, so they know what color boat, size, etc to look for.
