We have a Safelink R10 for each of us on board that we wear at all times.
My only issue with these has been some sort of alarm
sounding if the MOB
sets the thing off. Otherwise by the time you wake up for you watch (for example) you might have moved out of range.
Been searching again today and have just seen this from Digital Yachts which sounds perfect..
Digital Yacht - Light Years Ahead
Basically the unit is on the lookout for an AIS
SART going off. If it detects one it sounds a loud alarm
Not sure if the unit is out yet but I plan to pick one up and install before our ARC
Of course I'm well aware that the best thing is to stay on the boat
but this has been a missing part of the puzzle for me for a while so I wanted to report it as I hadn't seen it mentioned here.
(I don't work
for either company by the way).
