Re: Missing Kayaker 29/7/17

We carry tons of sinkers and wear waders. Will extra 500 grams kill you? Its more the physical size rather than the weight. A small PLB is more likely to be a permanent fit and forget attachment to a PFD. This is essential to kayakers who should always have a PFD on when on the water anywhere. Even...

Re: Missing Kayaker 29/7/17

I agree with everything you guys are saying but at the end of the day you cant save everyone. Its like the guy that loses it over the edge of a cliff because of crappy brakes or tires. Road worthy certificates stop this happening most of the time but there will always be those few that risk it. Now...
