That highlighted part , is absolutely correct ; however the Gizmo thingiesalexeyga wrote: ↑Sat Jul 10, 2021 7:05 pmSure, assuming that this Personal Beacon thingy had enough charge and that it works in Argentina at all.
If you've been long enough on these forums - there are some clear patterns.
Every time there's a death-loop related fatality - people stock up on rescue knives. Even though nobody really trains at what to do when a deathloop occurs. Neither anybody trains at how to get a knife out while getting dragged through water by a deathlooping kite... yet alone - actually use that knife.
Every time there's a lost-at-sea related fatality - first world folks stock up on Personal GPS beacons and safety vests. The fact that one shouldn't have been out in offshore, cold water conditions - to begin with... well, nobody seem to question that. Assuming that the GPS gizmo had enough charge in it and it actually works in Argentina - would rescue services reacted fast enough given how cold the water is? Can anybody answer that?
Root cause of these issues lays in lack of judgement and training - not lack of purchasable gizmos.
are a rather Good back-Up for when things go Bad.
You mentioned charged Battery's , (twice) ; OK-- without them
the devise won't work , just like your kite won't work, without
lines that aren't broken, (Same Analogy).
OH-Yea -- To all newbies :
Kiting without a rescue knife ; Yes, that is Really Stupid
so don't do that !!
A guy in Las Vegas, got drunk, and drove into a family, killing
some of them , and now he's gonna spend a Lot of time in jail
(saw it on the news) ; I Did learn by His mistake, to : "Don't Drive Drunk" .
