Thread: PLB - cheap

    PLB - cheap

    I have a PLB, an ACR ResQFix. It has the GPS that transmits your location to SAR if activated.

    It is now 6 years old, and needs a new battery. A new battery and service is $279 from the agents. Seems an awful lot for a battery - but thats the price.

    A new one is $500 - but the new ones are smaller. This one is about 330 gm, the size of a handheld GPS.

    So, if there is a forum member that should be using a PLB but doesn't have one and wants a deal this will be about as cheap as you can get. If you pay for the service you get another fresh 5 years from it, good as new.

    I'll donate it to someone on the basis they get the new battery done - and use it, not re-sell it.

    Looks like it's been taken. thanks for the PMs. For those of you who have one, the service agency is Wilco Marine Services in Westhaven Marina.
