A hunter has been rescued after spending 10 hours trying to find a route down to a river valley in a remote part of New Zealand's South Island. Having reviewed his options he activated his Fast Find PLB. Within a few hours 2 rescue helicopters had arrived, but due to the hazards of operating in the dark in difficult terrain returned at first light the following morning to complete the rescue.
McMurdo will feature the Fast Find 220 Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) in booths 1642 (Electronics Room), A95 and C95 at the 2013 Miami International Boat Show, February 14-18 in the Miami Beach Convention Center.
