Re: Caution: AIS Apps

OK, so I don't have radar and I avoid sailing in the fog. I do have an iphone. A couple of times a year it happens, the fog rolls in. I do check my phone to see what might be out there. I don't expect it to be 100% up to date or inclusive. At least I know what could be heading my way. I do take other precautions like keeping watch and sending out a securitae call.

It's sometimes accurate, though I don't expect it to be, and it's a whole lot better than nothing.
