Am excellent point, well made.

Toys/gadgets are one thing, but cart & horse should be got in the right order.

I would draw attention to this thread: http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?t=33600

As a discussion point, possible priorities for safety gear...

1) Auto Lifejacket

2) Waterproof handheld VHF clipped to person

3) Crotch strap

4) Spray hood

5) Sea survival course

6) Pocket flare(s) on person

7) PLB

Re-arrange to taste

It could be said that they are responding to a request for quotes, in the same way as Marine Super Store are represented here by links etc.

Mind you I would say that as I am not currently a trade member either.

Is it me or is a 5% discount - not really much at all nowadays? I'm thinking how often do they sell a high quantity of these things over the winter ?

Am I being unrealistic or out of touch ? In any dealing I have had & still have you'd start talking at 10% at least ?

In your enquiries do any suggest more could be discounted to a trade account holder? I will ask some of mine for responses but with Xmas break we may not hear straight away. How many are you asking for and which unit Fastfind 200 or 210(gps)
