    Epirb battery replacement time

    Anyone know of a rea$onable place/person to swap out the battery on my ACR global fix? The few on-line places I see are around $270. At that cost it's pretty much time to just trash can it since a 10 year vs 5 Epirb can be had for just a couple hundred more. Thanks

    A new sailboat pulled into cruiseport marina yesterday. We chatted and he said he and his buddy had just gotten out of La Salina. Apparently they personally funded the dredging of the channel in order to get out, wasn't cheap. It will be interesting to see how long it remains passable.
