Safety kit saves life of fisherman

16 Mar 2022

A story of a life saved.  The decision to put on a lifejacket equipped with a locator beacon, on the morning of the incident likely saved the life of fisherman with 38-years’ experience.  He has had just the one man overboard experience. But once is all it takes to never return to shore again.

The fisherman was wearing a PFD and a PLB. It is no exaggeration to say: They are life savers. Get the kit. Wear the kit. Live to tell your story too.
