Seeking Advice re: SPOT devices

Hi folks,  I'm seeking advice on which distress beacon to purchase.  Our travels are now confined to the Sea of Cortez and I would rather not put out the $$ for a new EPIRB...  I'm wondering if you have any experience with, or advice about, the FAST FIND beacons or SPOTs and which one would be a good model (to purchase in Canada and use in Mexico).  All advice welcome.  Thanks very much.

 

Oh, and also, I'm looking for a used water maker (preferably component style) in good condition.

 

Thanks,  Carolyn Daley

We have had a spot for about 8 years now. It is very reliable in telling our contacts at home where we are at all times, in Mexico, USA and Canada. Took it to Fiji with us 3 years ago and it didn't work there, although we understood it was "world wide". Very happy with ours.
