Re: A PLB for the Chesapeake Bay?
We sewed loops into our auto inflate PFD so that when inflated the PLB should be next to our head. You don’t even know you have it, yet there it is.
Every year folks drown in the Chessie. No guarantee your VHF will survive the fall or you won’t loose it.
SAR assets are far more likely to find you, and to be more motivated if they have a precise location; not just another “somewhere out there, poke in the dark” run. They have somewhere very specific to go to.
