Panbo editor, publisher & chief bottlewasher from 4/2005 until 8/2018, and now pleased to have Ben Stein as a very able publisher, webmaster, and editing colleague. Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

  1. SPOT is good. I picked one up and have been using in in various places, as has everyone else I suppose. It seems very accurate:,-122.4022&ie=UTF8&z=12&om=1
    This is not my boat, the Google Maps pic is old, but I hit the OK button from sitting in the cabin at the nav station and that’s pretty much exactly where it is in relation to the slip.
    My near-term plans are for coastal cruising and I will probably still get a “real” EPIRB though I may talk myself out of it.
