Epirb? flares? 2 way radio set to maritime channel, cell ph in a waterproof case?

Re: What is end of season / used gear worth?

Some shops in the US have crazy blowout sales at 50% of MSRP a year later (on brand new gear), if they can afford to sell them at that price it really shows how much markup there is when it first comes out... I think that some of those 50% off blow out prices is at cost or below cost just to quit d...
