Light Special "Always
Prepared" is the motto of the U.S. Coast Guard, and it perfectly
describes a search wherein Lifeboat Station Juneau received an EPIRB
signal, launched its boat, and homed in on the beacon--only
to discover it was ashore. More to the point, the crew finally arrived
in front of a marine store, where a red-faced employee told them
he had inadvertently activated the unit. The Coasties were once
again Semper Paratus, even if the emergency was in aisle seven.
Sometimes thinking outside the box brings you even farther—like say Minorca in Spain’s Balearic Islands. That’s where the Minorca 42 Islander is built, based on a traditional Mediterranean design.
