    Default Safety Requirements - EPIRB

    In reviewing the safety requirements, I see that the EPIRB requirement (3.16.1) does not specify whether a CAT 1 or Cat 2 is required. Before I purchase one, I would like to be certain that this omission is intended. Any insight here would be greatly appreciated (BTW, there are some really good end of the year specials on the ACR Global Fix Pro EPIRB - Cabella's $399). Thank you, Steven.

    That is intentional.
    Either Cat 1 (Auto Deployment) or Cat 2 (Manual) are accepted, as long as the unit meets the other requirements (406Mhz, Self-locating with internal GPS)

    Is it required to carry a full EPIRB or does a PLB satisfy the rule?
