It would be better to be seen and located rather than knowing what big ship is heading your way.
I have looked at radar reflectors and would love to have one. The pole type ones look good and I may fit one as a rear flag holder.
Anyone else got ideas.

Have any of you chaps out there fitted radar yet, it seems the only optional extra that has'nt been considered. Mounting it would appear to be the prob as it has to be above eye level (radiation) and the possible un-balance.Lets throw this open for discussion????????????/
So, what yak do you paddle, where would you mount it?

akomeister surely the spinning of the radar would unbalance your kayak leading to disaterous results . Your kayak must be one of the huge type.
Ive been offered a cheap lowrance radar 16mile range the only prob is that the screen is 24" do you know if you can get smaller screens??????? and do you think a car battery would power it???
