I thought I'd resurect this old thread....

Just seen this in the news:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/h...cs/2958280.stm

Looks like a good advert for the wearing of helmets.

bacon Sarnies

Keith

A source close to me has confirmed that they were trying to save the bacon sarnies from going over the side during the storm when the accident happened, not sure whats worse the obvious headache or the thought of losing a bacon sandwich to Neptune.

Does anybody have experience of the new inflate to fit Geko helmets. I saw them at the boat show and they looked and felt great. Are them comfortable after hours at sea. Also does anybody know about coms for them, how much are we talking.

Thanks in advance

Andy

Does anybody know about the new "Comms Kit" they have advertised on their web site.

No prices, pictures or details

It would be nice to be able to talk to the crew on a long passage, and I would prefer a radio system than a wired system

(Working for Motorola I can gat the PMR radios cheep!!)

Cheers

Gecko Comms

As you may know we supply Gecko and Ravenspring kit here in Ireland.

From talking to Gecko during the week, they are about to launch a reasonably priced comms package aimed at the Ribster in the next few weeks !

By the way if you are ordering a gecko for use on a RIB go for the two thirds face visor. Far superior to the full face visor !

If any team or group wants a trial, we have a demo mark 10 air lined helmet at the School for demo !

Best wishes,

Stuart

I emailed Gecko about 3 weeks ago about the radio kits and I'm still awaiting their reply...
