      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.

            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.

                    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.
