If these aren't up to the job on a RIB as Tim would seem to suggest, can anyone recommend an alternative ? I'm currently thinking along the lines of the large useless Plastimo cylinder jobby cable-tied under the a-frame to satisfy the coding 'tick-box' and then adding an Echomax ActiveXS but at £700 it's making my eyes water a bit!
I have a cyclops (trilens type...came top of tests...search on here for background). We operate near a test range (Aberporth) and they have no probs picking us up, so must work well.... http://www.cyclopstech.co.uk/
Know of a few coded ribs using the cheap ones to achieve coding....they faired really badly in the report i read....we can call upon the range /Aberporth to assist in S&R from the lifeboat. As such, my view is that its worth having a reflector that works!
They are difficult to get hold of /I think i remember hearing they now sell to the military only...could be wrong though.
Anyhoo....there was one for sale back in Feb this year here: http://bmbha.clicboard.com/sea-bay-f...-sale-t116.htm
Might be worth seeing if he still has it....they look pretty cool on your A frame too
And yes, I know the allround white in the pic isn't 'all round' as it's too low....will be raising it shortly
