Seascout-Net Mail Archive for October of 1998: EPIRB mounting

We are nearing the end of the refit of our boat, SEAHORSE & need to weld on
the mounting bracket for the 406Mhz EBIRB. Our fitter has made a
removable assembly so it can be safely stowed, hydrostatic release & all for
The question is where to mount the bracket? One local opinion says on a
cabin top in the clear & another recommends a sheltered location. The
theory is so it floats free if the vessel should sink.
Comments & advise welcome!
