Is anyone using FLIR on their yacht?
If yes...what did you buy and how do you use it?

Prices and smaller consumer systems are getting more attractive

I've used some of their military products for various applications. We've found multiple other uses for them besides what we originally purchased it for!

Our neighbour on a trawler has a Flir system. He's on the fence about its value.

I've plenty of experience with military optics. I'll wait another 5 years for the cost and performance to make me keen to adopt.

Flir owns Raymarine. That may be a turn on or a turn off.

If I bought a boat that had it, I wouldn't likely take it out, but I sure wouldn't buy it, and I am very familiar with both light intensification and thermal imaging, I just don't see a need that justifies the expense.
