How we plan not to die at sea - (Safety Equipment for making and Offshore Ocean Passage)


Location: Isla Mujeres
Latitude: 21.24000000
Longitude: -86.74000000
Published: 6 Jul 2022

With a 600 miles sail from Isla Mujeres, Mexico to Providencia, Colombia, we figured it was time to get our ditch bags ready, and to show everyone the other safety equipment we have on board. We feel very prepped and ready for potentially being lost at sea. Especially having basically x5 EPIRBs on the boat. These will send a 406 MHz radio signal that satellites pick up and alert a global rescue network to where we are at as long as the batteries don't die.
Big Items:

x2 EPIRBs (one the battery is outdated but still works) x1 is ACR Brand
x2 Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs) ACR Brand
Garmin InReach Mini with SOS feature
Multiple Flares & Flare guns (Orion Brand and assortment of expired European types)
Signal Mirror
Green Sea Dye for downed aviators (US Navy?)
MREs (Meals Ready to Eat)
Datrex brand rations of granola type squares and water packets
6 Person Life Raft with extra rations, water, and fishing lures
x2 SpinLock brand Lifejackets with spray hood & lights
x1 foldable solar panel USB Charger (got off Amazon for $30 something)
