My boat was taking on water,I was 15 miles out I gave coast guard my position got survival gear on.I put the epirb on the back deck. I was getting my liferaft ready when the boat rolled over my gear and I hit the water.my EPIRB light was on when I seen it next to me,but I could reach it so I flipped the switch . my life raft did not deploy so I unfolded it,laid my back on it,and waited for the USCG to come. thank God they did. They told me the EPIRB gave them my location. what a bunch of great guys that saved me.
