    I agree. I use my boat a lot and return home at night somtimes. I do not run fast at night however being able to head home at more than idle speed is nice. I have used both types of camera and they are both helpful. For me in addition to seeing other boats my camera will pickup boards, coconuts, see lobster pods etc. For a few more grand it can save serious prop damage as well as lives.
    We all know how much aggravation it is once you ding that favorite set of props!
    They are never the same.

I would suggest thermal, because that way you can see everything and wont miss it, because with night vision on a low illum night you could miss another small boat until you got right up on you. This is definitely a nice tool to have a in the tool bag if you run a lot at night and could potentially save your boat or your life. But with that said you shouldnt be flying at night and if you are out at night you should probably have a good knowledge of the water and a chart plotter
    He also needs to get a lot of seat time using a TIS.
