Has anyone??

In their travels come across a radar detection device called "Watchman" Had one on my last boat and it was simple,basic,reliable. Lost all info of who made it, a small one-man-band company I recall. The alternative is C.A.R.D (collision avoidance radar detector) a US product, also out of production.

Found nothing on Google for Watchman, the C.A.R.D dealer in Australia won't reply to emails...

I know AIS is now the thing but only good for 300 tons plus. I haven't got the power supply to fit radar. Grateful for any info.

Had one on a previous bat but never used it properly. It is called a 'Lokata Watchman' and you can get more info from this link http://books.google.com/books?id=NB4uFQ ... #PPA159,M1
