Hi Everyone, Purchased a new GME Epirb installed and fitted to the boat and just completed registration with SMS and email confirmation. On the back of the GME EPIRB is an area set aside to afix registration sticker. When I rang Beacons AMSA 1800 406 406 they advised me that they no longer issue these labels and that I am to keep a copy of the printed registration on my boat. Alternatively she advised me to take a picture of the registration details and to keep it on my phone for prrof of registration. When I advised her that there is an area allocated to the back of the EPIRB to afix a registration label she told me that this was provisoned for other countries not for Australia. When I get pulled over I normally hand over my life jackets and flares and in the past would unclip my EPIRB and hand this over also. Is it too costly for AMSA to issue a label, what if I forget or lose my phone I sure as hell will not be carrying an A4 sheet of paper on my boat even if it were laminated. Am I the only one that feels this way...?
