    What happened?

     

    Our Islander 32 sailboat was disabled in a storm on 10/26/14. This was a delivery from Honolulu to Everett, WA. I activated my personal locator beacon after determining the vessel was no longer seaworthy, and that continuing the 900 or so miles to Cape Flattery would be unwise.

    We were rescued by the Hyundai Grace, a Korean container ship with a Filipino crew, and taken to Panama.

    Words of Wisdom

     

    I tell anyone who will listen--and some who don't want to--that a PLB is as important a piece of safety gear as your PFD.

    Thank you note to ACR

     

     Thank you ACR employees! Your product saved three lives in a nasty October storm in the North Pacific, and we and our families couldn't be more grateful.

    Buoyant Personal Locator Beacon

    It may be small, but it's tough. The ResQLink™+ Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is a buoyant, GPS-enabled rescue beacon that's suited for outdoor adventures of all sizes (think: everything from hiking and cycling to hunting and fishing). Should you run into an unexpected survival situation, the ResQLink+ PLB will relay your location to a network of search and rescue satellites, allowing local first responders to more easily get you home safe and sound. Be Prepared for the Unpredictable
