Echomax Active XS
State of the Art Echomax Active-XS-Dual Band Radar Target Enhancer with minuscule current draw of 23mA on stand by and very high X and S band response many times the new ISO 8729-2 standard. Unique visual facility to identify S or X Band Radar paints. Quadruple alarm facility as standard.
The Active-XS amplifies and returns a stronger signal and these high responses to both X or S Band Radar increase the likelihood of improving your vessel's radar cross section and helps to alert oncoming vessels of your position and detection especially in poor conditions and thereby reduce the risk of collision.

Aquamate solar stills are light, compact and very easy to use.
They utilise solar radiation to distil and collect pure drinking water from sea or impure water.
The still will produce 500-2000 ccs of water per day and has been used for over forty years by military and civilian services around the world.
An ideal addition to the grab bag for any ocean going yachtsman at a fraction of the price of a mechanical or electrical unit.
