No, I can't say my entire time has been on stinkpots. I've got 4
transatlantic crossings under sail and 3 transpacific. I just would rather be
safe than sorry.
Also from my 9 to 5 job as one of them (USCG Marine Inspector), I am kind of
parochial about safety equipment. Based on regulation I would not allow a
certificated vessel to stow its EPIRB inside the vessel. That is pretty much
cut and dried.
