We have just read a scary article in a Spanish newspaper.

According to it, a ship that left Cádiz 3 weeks ago heading towards the Canaries, got lost and has been found 160 miles south of Tenerife.

Apparently they were contacted through the radio, which means they had power on board. Any of the systems we provide would have proved very helpful in that situation. Either AIS or satellite would have allowed both their relatives, friends or the authorities to track their situation at every time, and if needed, they could have easily contacted them through a satellite phone like the ones we sell and rent.

Caution and redundancy in the safety equipment on board seems to be never enough!
