CROSSTALK

Passage Maker - - Contents -

Dear Jonathan,

Thank you so much for your re­view of CrewWatcher (“Para­pher­nau­tica” May/ June 2018). We ap­pre­ci­ate the editorial and photo cov­er­age we re­ceived.

You state at the end of the piece that, “If you’re not wear­ing a life jacket, it’s sig­nif­i­cantly less use­ful.” I think its worth men­tion­ing that CrewWatcher is de­signed to be very flex­i­ble. As you said, it can be at­tached to a dog col­lar, but most im­por­tantly, it can be eas­ily at­tached to any piece of cloth­ing as well. It can also be placed in a towed dinghy so that if the dinghy sep­a­rates from the boat, the alarm will sound. Also, while un­der­way or at an­chor, you can mount it on top of a bilge pump so that an

alarm will sound if wa­ter over­takes the pump. Thanks again.

Cathie Trog­don VP of Pub­lic Re­la­tions, Weems & Plath

Dear Cathie, I do apol­o­gize for the over­sight and over­sim­pli­fi­ca­tion of the many other use­ful ap­pli­ca­tions of CrewWatcher. It should be noted that in my fi­nal quip, I only meant to im­ply that CrewWatcher, or any life-sav­ing de­vice that needs to be worn, is made in­fin­itely more ef­fec­tive when the per­son (or an­i­mal) is wear­ing a USCGap­proved PFD. Sin­cere thanks for the clar­i­fi­ca­tion. —Jonathan
