You do not need any electronics. Although we belive electronics makes our lives easier and safer, this is not the case. The amount of accidents increased worldwide after the introduction of electronic devices for boats.
Sounds like you need to check out this thread, starting about here....Coast Guard rescues 4 "sailors" off Charleston...
.....(and you'd think the Coast Guard paid more for theirs! Cant keep them off it. And where did they learn to talk that fast... can you guys understand them? I canna!)
Can't always understand them, but to my annoyance I can usually hear CG group Puget Sound warning me of dredging or whatnot in Anacortes when I'm 100NM away in Desolation Sound!!
.. every 15 minutes!!
