PLB on Wally’s Lifejacket
A PLB is a device which determines a GPS position and transmits it to an overhead satellite with much greater reliability than VHF, cell phone or SPOT transmitter. We’ve got those onboard as well, btw.
The problem was; how to mount the PLB on my wife’s inflatable lifejacket. The answer was punching a hole through the lifejacket (no easy task!) to fit a grommet which also pinned an elastic velcro strap. The strap wraps securely around the PLB to hold it in place until needed, at which time it can be activated, and the mount will hold the PLB above the water, facing the sky… Hopefully this will NEVER BE NEEDED!!
