acr v4 with user replaceable battery

auto release, mounted in proper location

note: the auto release mechanism needs to be replaced every two years

also recommend considering a life raft, ditch bag, sat phone, spare vhf, aerial flares, ais, plb, auto inflate pfds, etc. all depends on how you plan to use your boat and where.

for his use case would spot make more sense?

My thought would be its more likely "I need help non emergent" vs PLB sending the coasties out for anything.

curious on the captains thoughts
No, PLB is the way to go for a true emergency.

Spot maybe as secondary.

A boat with twins would be safer.
