I have is designed to mount on the outside of my boat and self deploy as my boat sinks, as such it sends a clear message that my boat has sunk and there are people in the water
that need help.
Some cruisers manually deploy their Epirbs by removing them from their case and dropping them in the water
, much like activating a sprinkler system by holding a flame under a sprinkler head
. Their reasons vary from loss of power, loss os steering
, to loss of cocktail ice, and anything in between.
What are your parameters?
