We decided to get a SPOT GPS tracking and emergency device for the remainder of our trip. While I'm not convinced that their emergency services are all that great (401EPIRB's are much better) it's a great backup to our EPIRB and a fun toy to help keep family and friends informed of where we are. We don't have a sat phone or SSB radio so this will be especially helpful on our next few extra long passages.
