Wanted - Spotlight for RIB or advice on type

Hi All,

Want to fit a spotlight to the A-frame of my RIB.

Any advice on the type to buy as many of the ones out there are quite cheap which usually means temporary!

Also trying to code my RIB for paying passengers, any advice on that?

Cheers Stevie

Jabsco remote control. I had one on my previous rib, it was a useful bit of kit.

was it the 135l model? I was wondering if the base would be too big for the top of my A frame?

Yeah, I think that's the one. Ospreys have double tube frames with joining plates. These make good platforms to which to bolt stuff.

So do I, if we send a team made up of Tom Croft, Paddys, Taffys and a sprinkling of your lot.

Have a look here: http://www.seascrew.com/ under online catalogue/electrical marine items/lighting spots and bulbs/spot and flood lights...I have the fourth down and very pleased. Powerful performance and a classy looking piece of kit
