Renting an EPIRB is a possible solution, but shipping it back from a foreign country can be an issue... A friend was trying to rent one for a delivery of a boat from Fairhaven to Halifax, and there was no reasonable way to ship it back to BoatUS from Canada due to customs and such. Also, the battery in an EPIRB is sometimes classified as hazardous materials.
That may be the case. However, I took an EPIRB from Washington Dulles through Copenhagen to Goteberg in 2006 with no issues. The MaxProp I was carrying was a problem, but the EPIRB was not.

I'd check with the folks at Puget Sound Inflatables ( ) about shipping.
