Domes & Bouancy Bags

Hi,
I'm not in the right hemisphere for Jester but I intend taking my 30' boat across the Indian Ocean - single handed in about 18 months. I would like to install a clear perspex dome in the coachroof to improve look out capability whilst inside and provide more headroom for when I'm operating from the cabin.
I am finding it difficult to locate a supplier in Australia. Are there any usual sources for such things.

On another matter a PBO article about Athelon single handed Atlantic crossing described the use of inflatable bouancy bags to be inflated in the event of sinking instead of a liferaft. Again though I cant find suppliers of such bags? Any ideas?

Thanks Eric, I'll chase it down.

I have in mind to ask others to participate in a cruise in company, if it can be organised in time.

I've enjoyed reading your exploits and am looking forward to more about the next Jester.

Kind Regards
TonyM
