An EPIRB is a rare spot on a leisure RIB - but many ribbers carry PLBs, I suspect as we think the RIB can look after herself but we may find ourselves adrift in a personal capacity.

I carry a PLB in my pocket and the RIB has an auto deploying EPIRB to keep the powers that be, happy.

Do you have an EPIRB on your RIB?

As Willk suggests there may be a regulatory reason to carry an EPIRB over a PLB but from what I can tell a PLB does the same job as an EPIRB, in terms of sending a distress message, but the EPIRB has a longer battery life when activated.

I'm happy to be corrected if this isn't the case as I've been contemplating investing in a couple of PLB's.

I have an EPIRB although probably wouldn't have started
carrying it if they hadn't been required for Round Ireland in 2013.

Agree with Andy - have the EPIRB only cause it was required during the RI in 2013 .
My even gave a false alarm while the boat was at the marina & I was in the pub ..
Thanks to Andy I have now also a PLB connected to my life vest .
