This probably deserves its own thread even though it relates to my discussion of the inReach device.
The report is not complete but apparently human error resulted in failure to notify the Coast Guard that an SOS signal had been received. Two sailors lost their lives in a grounding accident.
It would be unfair to draw conclusions or point fingers at this time. It is also unfair to speculate whether or not the sailors would have been saved if the Coast Guard had been notified. It is worthwhile to note, however, that we sometimes engage in risky business and our electronic gadgets are sometimes only electronic gadgets.
