Re: AIS "extremely vulnerable to hackers"

Mark - I agree, and because of the proven hacking of GPS signals I'm going to revert to my sextant and since people can fake voices on the VHF and SSB I'm getting rid of my Marconi units, too.

And if I get lost, I'll remove my aluminum foil hat and just shout out some special keywords so that the NSA can track me.
