Best supplier for kit to code a Rib

Hi Guys

I am currently in the process of coding my 7.5 Ribeye and have a couple of questions.

Do you know the best place to buy all the gear, is there a one stop shop or is it a case of different suppliers for everything. Any suggestions please.

Do you know the approx. timescale as to when I will receive the OK to operate assuming I buy the kit now. I am a commercial Yatchmaster Offshore.

Thanks

Topbuoy

Nice bunch of boys and girls.
Also if you set up an account with them you can get Icom kit at trade price!

I WAS INTENDING TO GO THROUGH THE NEW MGN 280 CODING BUT HAVE STARTED TO GET A FEW SUPRISES.

WHEN PRICING LIFERAFTS FOR 12 PEOPLE (EG 2 X 6 ) THE CODING INSISTS THAT THEY ARE ISAF BIULD STANDARD. THE PRICE OF EACH OF THESE RETAIL IS APPROX. 1500.

THE TOTAL BILL FOR CODING IS

3000 FOR LIFE RAFTS
300 FOR SOLAS B GRAB BAG
120 YELLOW LIFEBUOYS
150 TPA,S
150 HANDHELD VHF
60 FIRE EXTINGUISHERS
160 NAVTEX (RECOMMENDED)
200 ANCHORS
80 MEDICAL KIT
ETC ETC

FIGURES WERE FROM PORT SOLENT AS A GUIDE

HAVING READ THE FORUM FOR A WHILE BEFORE EMBARKING ON THIS VENTURE THE AVERAGE COST OF CODING GEAR SEEMED TO BE 2000 APPROX.

AM I WAY OFF LINE

HELP PLEASE GUYS.

Hi

I think you will find its cheaper in the longrun to hire the liferaft 12man about 550 per year and no servicing hassle

also you need to factor in the cost of the surveying society and surveyor
