After seeing what turned out to be a tri lens radar reflector on Lunasea and reading good reports on it, I thought I'd investigate the price. Whilst I can find most things on the internet, the tri lens is evading me.

Are they still on the go?

The Echomax Compact seems to be an alternative option.

I think tri lens is no longer in production.

Not so sure about that !

If you regularly cruise in waters frequented by ferries and any other large vessels , it goes without saying that you stay out of their way . If I were " broken down" or otherwise stranded , I would like that extra bit of security.......

Some have even suggested carrying a roll of baking foil for such emergencies
