I got one of these fitted onto my A-frame http://www.force4.co.uk/4416/Force-4...archlight.html Really effective but poor quality product.

Would go for this if doing it again http://www.asap-supplies.com/toc.php...eywords=723130 Better quality and better price.

On a small boat like a RIB wouldn't a hand held be a better option?

You could keep it in a bracket by the console ready for instant use.

think as codders said handheld for a small boat,it maybe ok on a still sea with a large boat but i can just imagine trying to keep it on something in a lumpy sea .
