As I have posted in the past there are certain things that I think of as “life insurance” when boating. A properly fitted PFD (Personal Flotation Device) is one of those no matter where you boat. However, if you boat offshore, a properly equipped life raft and an EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicator Radio Beacon) or PLB (Personal Locator Beacon) fit in that “life insurance” category.
Being introduced at many of the fall boat shows ACR Electronics has its new ResQLink PLB and it’s been selling at local retailers for about $280. Small and mighty, the ResQLink™ is a full-powered, GPS-enabled rescue beacon designed for boater, anglers, pilots and back country sportsmen. Watch the company video below.
