A family of four whose yacht hit an iceberg in the south Atlantic are being taken to the Falkland Islands after being rescued by a warship. Safety equipment supplied by Cactus played a major role in saving their lives.
Skipper Carl Lomas says, "Cactus had overseen the whole electronic package for yacht Hollinsclough, Raymarine, AIS transmit and they pushed us to fit the Iridium satellite phone... There was no doubt that one of the key items that saved our lives was the Iridium data, we are very thankful to Cactus and the advice that helped save our lives."
Cactus prices are amongst the cheapest youâ€™ll find but what makes the difference between us and other internet dealers is we know what we are sell and can offer genuine unbiased advice.
This knowledge is based on our own experience of boating and selling marine electronics going back over 35 years.
Over the years we have built up a customer base of over 60, 000 customers all over the world, many of which stay in contact and give us valuable feedback on how kit performs whether itâ€™s being constantly hammered in the South Ocean, baked in the Med, or on a boat rarely used in the Hamble.
Itâ€™s not uncommon for us to actually persuade a customer that they donâ€™t actually need to spend as much as they were planning as there is another solution that will perform better for less.
So if you want some advice that will certainly save you money and could just save your life, call Cactus.
