Thanks,,,,last weekend I helped deliver a J160 from Newport to Annapolis that had ALL the bells and whistles. Radar, AIS, (even a class B Transceiver), AC and water maker. That AIS is fantastic. The CPA and TCPA feature makes life easy. But that doesn't seem to be the norm for me. So thanks for the info on the hailing.

Speaking of the Queen MaryII,,,,one of the other crew told a story of coming accross her. When the radio operator found out the boat name, he responded by saying something like "roger that QEII". A very formal british voice corrected him over the radio saying, "this the vessel Queen Elizabeth II." I guess those brits don't appreciate informality.
