Got one of these not cheap, but nicely made & razor sharp. It's clipped to my LJ. My PLB fits in the pouch on my LJ & the Rescue laser fits in the other pouch. I have my HH clipped on + a lanyard if it gets lumpy. Combine that lot with a drysuit & I reckon I've just about covered it.

I love the design; not so much the material. I'll post pics of mine when I get the chance (assuming I remember to do so.)

It sits zip tied to the A-Frame, and has been disassembled and fully coated in silicone grease before reassembly and mounting. It's also been removed and thoroughly cleaned up a couple of times.

Me too. It got used in anger on the RI2013. We picked up a monofilament net on the west coast - hadda put a man in the water. That thing cut mono like butter, took a whole hank of net out of the prop and shaft - only minor scuffing and a couple of dinks to the scalloped blade. I found a cheap fine diamond file and touched it up - perfect again...
