Can anyone recommend any particular strobe?
Brian, as you know, I have frequently extolled the virtues of strobe lights at sea. I have always carried one because they are unmissable in the dark. With a low base the light bounces off the bottom of clouds and can be seen well over the horizon.

The one I currently use and over the years it is the best I have come across is the Jotron AQ5. It retails at £47.95 and I bought mine on-line from Shamrock Quay Chandlery. The web address is...
I like this light because it is waterproof to a military spec and is a sensible shape (about the size of a pack of 20 Malboro!) with a clip for attaching to a belt or life-jacket.
Good bit of kit.
