Reflective Tape^

Post by monkeyboy » Sun Jun 04, 2006 11:04 am

I've seen several boats/blades with reflective tape stuck on. Does anybody know where I can get some?
Thanks

Hi
Another option is if you know someone in the Emergency Services, ask for the off cuts of the sticky tape that they cover their cars with.It of course comes in yellow blue or green.

If you want the proper stuff then go to your local yacht chandlers - they should sell SOLAS approved retro-reflective adhesive tape. (its what's used on lifejacketes/liferafts, RNLI boats etc) Its the DBs if you like that kind of thing and wont come off (easily!) However, its not cheap - the local chandler's charge about £1.90 per ft, but hey, you get what you pay for!
