Has anyone done research on PLB's, what to buy and where. And do I need one if I do the Perth Doctor ?I believe the regs say if you are more than 400 metres from shore you are required to have one.

Hi 'Boss',

I use the following: www.chsmith.com.au/Products/McMurdo-Fast...20-PLB-with-GPS.html

It is nice and small and easy to use. Although they are water proof I would still keep it in a dry bag.

I've done the Doctor a few times on a SUP, never needed a PLB. Just pfd and flares. But saying that, I'm also keen to get a PLB!

Boss to get the info attend: Sorrento Surf Club - Saturday 8th from 8.00am – 9.00am for the Doctor talk...all your questions can be answered there.

I carry a PLB & flare every time I paddle in the ocean - perhaps thats just me...
