It’s Friday! If nothing else, that means you won’t be hearing from me for two days, just know that it is the weekend, I haven’t forgotten you!

For today I promised to address AIS. Not to be lazy, but I found this wonderful BoatUS article that covers what I wanted to cover. 

For the record, I personally have passive AIS on my smartphone that I only use to track fleets, such as the Baja Haha; passive AIS with my VHF that only works with my old charplotter, which is the main reason the old chartplotter is still installed at the nav station; and a B&G AIS transponder/VHF on my list of projects for next year.

Keep safe, keep learning,
