Tragedy in the news

Was reading Techcrunch this morning and saw the terrible news regarding the passing of Rob Williams. My thoughts go out to his family and friends. On top of this, I've been intently following the developing story of the four football players who were lost at sea (one rescued so far). I'm hoping for a good outcome there.
A friend of mine, Maurice, is an avid sailor and he suggested carrying an emergency homing GPS when embarking on any slightly adventurous trip. These things cost about $750-$1,000 but allow search and rescue teams to know exactly where you're at within a 50-75 foot radius, anywhere in the world. And Maurice definitely knows a thing or two about search and rescue - check out the video below.
