Great Piece of kit and undoubtably a bonus but for that kind of money I'd rather slow down and use pilotage / night vision when approaching an anchorage or harbour.

How did Vasco DaGama get on with out one??

too expensive!

I like the look of them and have been trying to get one fitted to my big ship, but the company "she say NO!"

Apparently too expensive to spend 3,000 Bucks on a $220,000,000 ship!

Ah well live in hope..............

Surely you don't need one of those, with all the other expensive gadgets you must have aboard a vessel of that size and value, although more the merrier I guess, but wouldn't you need two, one for the pointy end and one aft.

Did you use it at all on your night passages?

We've got one at work.

Good for finding hot spots on machinery and switch panels and also water and delamination in sandwich and carbon structures.

We use it for looking at damaged boats to determine the extent of damage. Was a lot more than the one above and has about 10 times the resolution.

Never felt the need to have it in the boat
