Raymarine Life Tag

I am about to go on a trip with my family which consists of two boys ages 2 and 4. We are very nervous about MOB situations even though the boys will be wearing PFDs and have tethers with rules. I was thinking of spending the money on the Raymarine Life Tag system but am unsure if it is worth it and if there are other options out there. Basically I would like a auto-activating device in a MOB situation. Any suggestions? Please remember it has to be self activating when submerged because of the ages.

Thanks

Excellent equipment if you have AIS but not automatically activated. Except if your kids have self inflating life jackets the S20 should work. (Oops just realized your kids ages so they should not have self inflating life jackets until about aged 10 as about 20% of the time the inflation fails)

I have S10s for my crew when off shore. Transmits direct to your chart plotter and to anyone else in the area with AIS.

Well just a suggestion and I think certainly increases safety in the MOB case significantly for adults.
