I read a lot of correspondance with the MCA regarding the appeal by the industry to legalise PLBs on land in the UK.

Their response was that the rescue services will not automatically respond to an alert on land, they will assume it's been set off by accident and telephone the number supplied at registration.
If there is somebody there who informs them you are in a situation where you may require rescue then they will respond, otherwise they will continue to attempt to contact the registered owner.

So really you want to give them a number that will always be manned by someonw who knows you are out doing dangerous things ?

When you press the red button I expect ( depending on the situation) ;

Coastguard Helicopter
RN/RAF SAR Chopper
Large RNLI lifeboat ( or two)
Several 'Play Boy' esqe nurses to warm me up
Heavily armed Royal Marine types- if needed
The wife never to know I have been in any trouble
The Boat to be taken home & fixed ( and at least valeted)
A book deal telling of my 'daring/ stupid ' expliots
Kelly Brooke
The Wife never to know to know about Kelly Brooke

If all this doesn't happen I dont want one ...............

Yes, but not if it's sending a GPS squawk from the side of Ben Nevis or the Knoydart peninsula. No, they'll say that, but they'll saddle up and go get you. Good lads all.

If you are wondering whether to buy or not, I suggest you read Left for Dead, a true story by Nick Ward. it is his account of exeriences in the 1979 Fasnet race where he and a fellow crewman were 'left for dead'.
