Last year on a Wait-a-While spotlighting tour out of Cairns I asked the
professionals what a boy ( or girl ) needed. They suggested :-
* Yuasa 7 amp battery.
* Watsco light.
* GEC (with umbrella in front) 30 watt sealed beam light source.
* trickle charger.
* red filter.

I've been meaning to get one ever since.

a hopeless task.
