Or would it really "solve the drift" problem?
Without knowing SAR routines and procedures....
choices are to estimate drift and current
or to determine it by some method that takes time or to not consider it which renders the search less effective.
What does sar require / suggest?
1. Different conditions ie going upwind, downwind, on a reach when someone is lost overboard
. when it is discovered 1min, 3min 5min 10min...1hr later... how do you really know? What personnal locater devices are available. ?
What is most effective search for each?
