The “management” has just returned from her dog training club meeting and clasped in the grubby paws (hers not the dog’s) was an Aquascribe waterproof notebook which they have been issued with to make notes; draws tracks; etc. whilst out working the hounds.
I got to thinking that these could be very useful on a RIB for course notes, position reports; drinks orders (by all accounts they don’t smudge even when dunked in a pint as was proved at the pub after the meeting!!!); and communicating with the crew (for those of us who can’t afford hi-tech comms systems).
After a quick Google search, the makers site is www.aquascribe.com
They are not cheap but if the GPS goes down then a waterproof hard copy of the course would be more than useful.
Worth a look perhaps as they do send you a nice free sample. They also do waterproof sheets for laser copiers which I imagine could be quite usefull for sea-schools, clubs, etc.
(I hasten to add that I have no interest in this product other from a consumer point of view)
