A meet-and-greet event with George Poveromo, nationally recognized saltwater fisherman and star of the NBC Sports Network TV series, “George Poveromo’s World of Saltwater Fishing”. Visitors will receive a free signed copy of George’s book, Saltwater Strategies & Tactics*, have a chance to ask George offshore fishing questions, take photos and enter a raffle to win ACR survival gear. All boat show attendees are invited to meet George at the ACR Electronics’ booth #344 in the Bahia Mar Electronics Pavilion, on Saturday, November 7 from 1:30p to 4:00p.
George shared, “The very first EPIRB I purchased was an ACR, and every one since has been an ACR, because of their untouchable reputation in the marine safety field.” Together, ACR and Poveromo are getting the word out to offshore boaters that 406 MHz beacons are a small price to pay for life-saving technology and should never be viewed as optional gear. “People tend to associate boating mishaps with sinking,” said Poveromo; “What if there’s an electrical fire and you need to abandon the vessel? There are inherent dangers associated with offshore fishing and boating, and that’s why every sea-going vessel should carry an EPIRB as well as personal locator beacons. You can’t put a price tag on the safety of your family and friends who are on board for a fun day of fishing,” added Poveromo.
