    Bold Coast / Fundy / Cobscook 8.2 - 8.5.19

    My grab loop episode was in a pool in Biddeford. There were only two others at the shallow end while I was practicing rolling at the opposite end. After a couple of attempts to roll up , I went for the grab loop which to my surprise and horror, wasn't there. I did finally free myself by the side skirt technique as I remember (it's been awhile). As far as I can remember haven't done that again

    Wed. Lunch Paddle #15: 8/14/2019 @ Nahant Beach

    I am going to try to make it. Kind of in the same state as Al. Best I can say is if you see me, I'll be there, if you don't I didn't make it.

    PLB

    I carry a ACR PLB which is registered with SARSAT. The registration is updated every two years , but I can update contacts at any time online. I started carrying for the same reasons as Rob, family and aging. It is not small so it's in the day hatch most of the time. SARSAT makes a point to only activate in a life or death situation. Otherwise you could be looking at an extremely expensive ride home. Response is not as immediate as direct contact with rescue agencies. SARSAT calls your contacts first to confirm emergency then sends rescue. there are areas along the coast of Maine where I have not had cell service and if the VHF fails or out of range the PLB is last resort.
