But you might!
I now carry two mobile 'phones with me - my personal everyday 'phone which often goes in an aquapac if it's wet or rough, then I can use the lanyard to either attach it to something on the boat, or it can go round my neck.
The second 'phone is an O2 pay-as-you go which gets seldom used and I make sure is fully charged. This one goes in the plastic bag and stays in a pocket. It will only come out in case of emergency. It has all the coastguard telephone numbers saved.
