As the EPIRB on board Pathfinder when I bought her is out of date (battery renewal 1998)and not registered, I am looking into a source of batteries or new EPIRBs
It is a Litton, they are no longer made or supported. The battery is a Panasonic LiCnF type
Locally, EPIRBs are twice the West catalogue price and I hate to be ripped off. West say they cannot send me one as they are classified as HAZARDOUS.
Can anyone help or advise ?
Does anyone know which idiot made it so difficult to get a really useful safety device.
I have already been charged nearly as much for a replacement lifejacket cartridge and trigger as the West price for a new complete lifejacket, here in Phuket, on the basis that they are HAZARDOUS.
