Sadly plus VAT though which brings it just over 170 to the usual discount price at Marine Superstore etc.

Still cheap in the big scheme of things. I'd rather chuck 170 at that than at a flare pack.

Oh yes... flares never to be seen again on our SIB. It was just I don't have a PLB and at the headline 143 was close to clicking buy... mind you what's the extra 30 for VAT when it hits the fan.

Cactus will probably ship outside the EU, VAT free. You would have shipping & local NZ taxes to pay. No idea what that'd amount to, worth a look though.

Finally took the plunge and bought a Fast Find 220 from Cactus.
Watched a few YouTube videos and decent reviews.
Well done P.D - you can claim your sales commission now😁
