And your going to do it in only a week? May the winds be in your favor! And take plenty of extra fuel.

They do send you a sticker to put on the device and it has to be re-registered every so often. Are boat EPIRB's different than aircraft ELT's? I thought they were the same.
For all intents and purpose, they are the same. There are some esoteric differences but for the user (victim???), they are the same.

One week, plus the weekend on each end, so nine days. Works out to 94 miles each day, at six knots, 15 hrs a day. I would say it's do-able with a crew of four if we had an auto-pilot. we don't, so it's going to be tough, it's not going to be a vacation, unfortunately. I may be a little off on mileage, I have a tendency to overestimate things, it's a built in cushion that way.
