        I sell boats for a living and my wife made me get one when I go fishing by myself. It's actually a good thing to have and I've recommended it to parents buying boats for their kids and people who boat alone.

                Comments about Acr Electronics ResQLink+ Buoyant Personal Locator Beacon:

                ACR makes a small water-resistant pouch to fit the ResQLink. It can easily be carried on your belt and it should be - at all times on the water. A PBL or EPRIB on the console or in a ditch bag is of no use in case of an accidental fall overboard. It only takes a small slip or sudden wave for this to happen - wearing your PLB gives extra protection and peace of mind, especially when boating alone. This unit is very compact and intended to be attached to you; there is no good reason not to. And it REALLY works - I had to activate mine once and it was a lifesaver.

                  I bought this product for offshore fishing. West Marine is go to to store for everything with my boat. Their prices are very competitive and the sales associates are fantastic. The EPERB is small and compact and can be kept in my emergency throw over bag. You can never be too safe!!!!

                      Sure hope I do not have to use the PLB. But; if I do I am counting on the the ResQ Link + working like the reviews and advertising says it will. The West Marine is very close to my house so, I have had excellent help and cooperation from the staff and their knowledge of products you offer.
