    Interesting to read about the use of AIS Safety Related Messages, especially as the IMO are moving to discourage use of these:

    Another MOB device which don’t send information to AutoPilot… It’s useless if you are alone on your sail boat.

    I have used this device and can tell everyone it works very well. I have found that using the repeater function gives this device a useful application and having individual programmed wrist bands for large groups is great in making sure that you have everyone onboard. I have not used this with only one person and I am not sure that using the SRM message would be useful due to nobody really even knowing how to identify it through most peoples displays.

    Like i say by phone, you can send a bearing NMEA sentence to autopilot with +90ļæ½ each 30 seconds.
    if the skipper drags a heaving line he can try to catch it.
    Because if you are alone (alarm useless) to sail (engine switch off useless) across oceans (limit DSC coverage), you want to keep your vessel within swimming.
    With RAYMARINE life taf, there is an electrical output. You can plug it on a relay near autopilot compass device to make to the boat a full turn. But it’s not so easy.
    sory for my english šŸ˜‰
