Thanks Doug - post edited - interesting that the price increase was'nt mentioned - I wonder if this is a way of retailers justifying poor bulk order quotes??

I think there are a couple of factors, one is that there always lots of very short lived special offers from manufacturers while the London boat show is on but catching these right without committing to large amounts of stock is difficult.

The other is that at these prices then there is simply very little margin to allow for any problems, so a calculated risk says that further discount is just not worth it (remember the retail price on these is 260 pounds so everyone is discounting to start with).

The final word on buying a PLB for registration outside of the UK is thus:

1) Contact your country's registry and get a unique serial number allocated, in many countries this is your boat's MMSI number.

2) Order your PLB and ask the retailer to have it programmed with that number
or
Buy one "off the shelf" and send it to McMurdo to be programmed with your number.

There is a charge for programming, McMudo's is 49 pounds. Our charge is 35 pounds.

Thank you for your opinion

Can I assume you will be first to step forward and offer to coordinate the next multi-buy?
