Found this at compass24.com, it looks exactly the same as the Aqua Signal Bremen hand lamp but it is half the price. Does anyone know if itís any good? They say it meets MCA does that mean it is SOLAS approved? Des

I think is not SOLAS approved if it does not say so.

SOLAS (Save Of Life At Sea) is an international Organisation funded by shipowners Worldwide, MSA (MArine Safety Agency) is a UK National Oragnisation funded by the UK Government. Two different Oragnisations with own rules and regs many of which are the same

But I did not see to say MSA approved

Waterproof and buoyant. Rubber-covered 12 volt, 50 watt searchlight with convenient pistol grip, on / off signalling button, 70 cms spiral cord extendable to approx. 270 cms with a cigarette lighter plug. Throws a beam up to 300 metres. Dia.: 12 cms.

Had an Aquasignal in my old Ribcraft 4.8. Brilliant (sorry!) bit of kit. Best to have a proper water-proof socket rather than a ciggy lighter thingy.

Actually I thought SOLAS was a convention for safety of life at sea that lays down standards for allsorts of ship related things which are then enabled in law by the individual countries. The international body I think you are referring to is the International Maritime Organisation or IMO. UN body but based in London.

Looks identical to the Aquasignal to me. Forget the cigarette lighter socket and get a waterproof plug and socket. Well worth the extra £'s.

Bought one and although it looked the part it was, in reality, a poor copy . It was not water proof and I doubt that the switch will last. Buy cheap by twice (now who said that).

So Iíve sent it back and will buy the real McCoy. Does anyone know were I can get a 24V aqua signal lamp for less than £70?
