Thanks for that one Puffin -Marine Superstore are certainly offering a good deal - we have a couple of others still looking around but it might be the Boat Show is the answer.

Will give Marine Superstore a call after Christmas and see if they can offer any reduction based on numbers - anyone here have a warm contact??

Malthouse - many thanks for your time on this

No probs.

My advice would be to print out the MSS page and take it round the stands at the boat show, someone will beat the price just to meet quota.

(You will still need a well stuffed debit card though IMHO)

Will do but the well stuffed debit card might be an interesting challenge

Well said. In fairness the non GPS version would probably suffice in the Solent or other well populated inshore areas, but the idea of a little imp that calls the coasties when you end up in the doo doo is very appealing. Better than waking up dead on Brighton beach at any rate.
