And bye bye to anyone standing in front of it as launches off its brackets at approximately the speed the rib was doing only seconds before it hit that wave...

Perhaps the skipper should be referred to C2 RIBS' thread on 23 of Jan. concerning GECKO helmets...

Obviously he had the passengers health in mind when he had this fitted. I do not mean here any "body damage" but the " cooking of the brain"

He should have gone for the broadband radar as no problem with such hazzards.

Can't see it lasting for long - am I wrong?

Anyone got any experience?
Wonder if this has had a run out and survived.

It is still on there! Although it hasn't been tested in anything but calm seas. I would be a little worried about it "frying" my brain though!
