New Yachting Australia Regulations.

New regs came in to effect on October 29, 2010 regarding EPIRBS, PFDs and PLBs.  Whilst the wearing of PFDs at night is no stranger to us, given Marine Safety Victoria's laws and effective immediately at that, the Brass thought it pertinent to remind shoppers for PLBs this Xmas that the expected battery life of a non-GPS EPIRB/PLB is over five years, by which time the buying cialis in canada new rules will be in force (from 01/07/2015).
