Use as a PLB attached to my sailing harness or live vest. Despite having to send it to the factory for any maintenance, better to have one than not. Has a test button to make you feel better.

            I chose the RESQ-Link because it included both GPS and high frequency homing signals and a strobe light. This provides excellent capability for personal locator for near and in-shore marine activities.

                  Comments about Acr Electronics ResQLink+ Buoyant Personal Locator Beacon:

                  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.

                    At this point if you are fishing offshore you should own one. And not just for the your safety, but everyone else you bring out on your boat.
