s/v HyLyte loaned me his SPOT Messenger for a passage
, and on to St Thomas. From St Thomas we headed through the Bahamas
and around to Tampa Bay.
It worked quite well. A few transmissions were lost
, and again for a 100 nm or so stretch between San Salvador and Eleuthera. Other than that, it performed flawlessly.
I see it primarily as a means to keep family
and friends updated on your location.
