Re: Don't read this unless you have time . .
I've done a lot of cruising and have no idea what AIS is. My primary nav tool is my ancient SILVA hand bearing compass and good paper charts. I bet I know a lot more about where I am than most people.
Well, depending upon where and how you cruise, you might want to educate yourself... AIS can be an extremely useful tool, and a real enhancement to safety at a relatively modest price...
