Yes - exactly 50 years they would be dead, but there are few people who think PLB's and EPIRB's are they primary source of survival.

These people survived because they prepared had the right equipment and of course had the EPIRB.

The delay to rescue is bit worrying but then again, it could not happen in the UK.......

As lifeboat crew said to me " its ok you having the PLB and EPIRB's etc, but we still need to reach you"

The kit is good, but you need to prepared to survive till somebody manages to act on it or reaches you.

For us the EPIRB is the icing on the cake - the last catch all - got the lifejacket, got the drysuit, got the handheld radio - seems daft to therefore not have a way to be located if all else fails - it definitely isn't our primary piece of safety kit.
