I am sure that the Practical Boat Owner did a test on them last year and founf out that the one (Sea me??) that is hard wired in was founf to be the best, and also the dearest at about £400 or so. I have noticed that quite a few boats in the Marina are now sporting them.
I would think that your new boat should give quite a good bounce on a radar with the wheelhouse that you have fitted.
I Have checked my own boat which has just a cuddy on it and get quite a good signature with out any radar reflector fitted.
