Again I'm posting toward.......

..........the end of a thread, however, if we don;t have the money,space, inclination to have Radar, should we not in the least have a reflector so those with the kit (usually either fast moving or worse still slow moving) can see us.

As I'm sure you're aware, Graeme, small craft are required to fit reflectors "if practicable" according to the Solas V Regs.

I agree itís good practice to use a reflector but do they work most of the articles I read about them leave me with the feeling that there operation is at best patchy .

I think I'll adopt Pete7s approach and use smoke, most people notice that.
