LMAO!!! I was thinking the same thing. Kinda like the what type of gun do you carry thread.:spineyes:aaaahhhhh............ time for the quarterly spot post again so soon?
where does the time go!..........
spot = fun toy
in leau of epirb? = foolish IMO
This PLB is only $299.99. If this is out of anyones budget for SAFETY equipment, time to find a new hobby.
I wonder what percentage of small, non-commercial fishing boats in the GOM have either? Its kind of like the I-phone. Tech junkies wait in line to get the first one...others take longer to decide. Were all fishermen idiots who fished in the GOM before either device existed?SPOT is not an equivalent safety item to an EPIRB. If you want to use a SPOT for info so family and friends can see where you are then great, if you think it substitutes for an EPIRB then Darwinian logic applies.
Good point! Also, they are two different things. One means you are going down. The other is a good way to see if your "float plan" is on track by aHow much the boat originally cost doesn't matter when it heads to bottom. When your bobbing in the water, your pretty well equal to the next guy.-Mike
