For an experienced person, with tools and ancillaries at hand, It takes about an hour to get the RMD working, the trap tested and the raft assembled. Instructions are available on the WRT website. Further time will be required to get set up on the RMD web portal, and to register the RMDs. Once everything is ready, the smart raft can be deployed. You’ll need tethering rope (we use 6mm diameter polypropylene) and mooring stakes, unless there are existing posts or handy trees in the right spot.
