The SignalMate looks like a good product, and seems reasonably priced, but I have no experience with it. I've had an OGM tri-anchor on my boat since 2006.

If they were a profitable, up and coming company you would think they could keep their website up to date. Maybe the LED business is suffering.

I briefly compared the OGM site to the Signal Mate site. The Signal mate draws less current (.3 vs .5 Amps), offers a 5 year vs 2 year warranty and cost $60-70 less. It is available in 2 or 3 wire version. I wonder why that wouldn't be the best choice?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
