Guys, guys, read the post properly.Smokie intends buying a larger rib!
First of all, welcome to the forum Smokie. We have had a lengthy discussion about ribs and radars on a separate thread sometime ago, type radar in the search facility and try and make head or tail of everyone's viewpoints. As far as auto-pilot is concerned, personally I think it is a complete waste of time and money because I prefer helming the crafty myself. Now, if you were
Alan P about to circumnavigate the world, that would be a different matter entirely.
Out of interest, what did you have in mind to purchase as far as ribs are concerned?
Sorry, just read your post....if you are unfortunate to live in an area which is prone to fog, I would not hesitate in having a radar fitted, it comes down to safety which should never be compromised. Do not get caught in the trap of thinking once you have radar fitted you do not require a radar reflector. Even if you are transmitting, another craft will not necessarily pick you up on their radar. Invest in a good radar reflector as well as radar.
