Thanks C2 - I would say we are after 15 plus - can't speak for everyone else but happy to wait for the best price

Just to clarify those prices so far received have come through other RIBnet members and trade dealers - I'm still waiting for my enquires to be answered

Cheers Jean - maybe I'm having a panic as I just got another 1k boat bill ! ( Insurance for both boats , service , winter storage, anodes, compressor belt ).

I love this time of year for spending money with no clear result - Bah Humbug .........

I genuinely do not believe that MSS will have that much room on these, mind you I was wrong about 195 being the best price so it just goes to show that optimism can pay off.

If it were me I would get in before the VAT goes back up, or all the bargain hunting will be undone.

RRP on these is 255 pounds, so I just cant see you getting them down to 180 unless someone happens to be behind the right lorry and the door falls off.

To put it in context, a PLB is the cherry on the cake of personal safety wear...

Auto lifejacket with crotch straps... 60
Lifejacket light and spray hood... 30
Waterproof VHF... 90
Sea Survival course... 80

Falling overboard and being able to make tea with your inflatable kitchenette... priceless.

I will all seem worth it when you stop mid channel on the next Floptilla to swim with dolphins and cool down in the record breaking globally warmer summer.

Cheers Malthouse. Happy to be out of touch ....( but in touch mid channel when the dolphins have buggered off and the motor wont start !)

Didn't mean any slight against anyone.
