EPIRBs

We have 2 of these on board.  They are satellite tracking devices that can be used to alert the authorities if there is a serious problem (boat sinking, man overboard, etc):
  • Del's personal locator beacon (carried by whoever is on watch unless they have their own): 3EF623163F81FE0
  • GME 401FF automatic EPIRB in float free housing (auto launches at 4m depth) BEED40E8A80022D
