just for clarity-i'm in no way suggesting anyone pays anything to me or any other member-the monies should be paid to rib.net as they should be the buyer. i.e they can make a little wedge by just ordering in X amount and selling them to us if they wish.
on another note i was thinking of the little GPS recorders you can text for a live update that you commonly see on ebay. these allow you to program a "home port" and if the boat moves 50 yards from it (from memory) it will text your mobile telling you. you can also disable this aswell obviously.
i looked at some PAYG options and i found one a while back at £5 that stays live for 90 days. i assume it won't be used (here is hoping) so it would only take 20 quid per annum to keep it running. ofcourse people may have better deals open to them or may know of better ones???
my idea is to hide it in the engine somewhere which should be easily doable given the size and it's plain black would just look like part of an engine to most.
edit-like this for example http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Original-Thinp...item1c17310ee9
