Re: The danger of GPS as the sole means of navigation.
Was at a local anchorage yesterday getting ready to return to the marina. Pulled up the anchor, settled behind the wheel, and went to turn on the GPS. Then I thought, " you've been here numerous times, you know the route, you know what buoys to look for, where they are, and where the hazards are, you don't need the GPS ". I turned the GPS on anyway. How's that for being a gutless wonder.
Yeah, Steve, and you're not alone!
