Add to it with an idiots guide to switching on the radio along with pics if possible. the chances are the time when you fall over the side, the only people on board will be mates who have never been on a boat before. Mr Sod strikes again.

Why not make your own on your computer and print it off. It took me about 10 minutes to produce one for both VHF and DSC including an "idiots guide" on "how to" use the radio. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

If you send for the free RNLI Safety at Sea pack there is a sticker in there, although it's quite small writing and generic so you need to know how to use your radio.

I made my own and got it laminated - took all of 10 minutes and much easier to use (hopefully!) you can also write your name phonetically (spelling?!) to help crew remember it in an emergency

scroll to bottom of page.
A DSC radio should give the coastgaurd all info required as long as it is registered to the correct vessel and connected to a GPS.
