jrd22 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.

Do you know for sure they will work there?

goboatingnow Take the EPIRP with you and get on with it , yes you should re-register but the SAR peolpe will respond. You may get a talking to, but if you need to be recused then that is the last thing on your mind.

Let your EPIRB contact person know what you are doing that alls.

Registering the EPIRB to the dinghy means that instead of looking for the 40' sailboat, which you may be on when it is damaged.... they're looking for a small dinghy and may overlook the bigger boat initially as the description doesn't match.

If you have to pull the tab on the EPIRB, I registering it to a dinghy doesn't earn you a Darwin.
Dog,
Read post #6 and click on link..expand it and you will see where i am going and why i want this NOT CONNECTED TO PREVIOUS OWNER..but it will work here.

Thank you

catamount How far in advance has this trip been planned? I wouldn't crew on a 9-day bluewater voyage without first having found out how well-found the boat was sufficiently far in advance that I would have time to re-register my EPIRB (if it came to that). Do people really go on trips like this (trips that would warrant bringing an EPIRB with them) at the spur of the moment?
