Paul - you know I am unarmed. I met the other sailboat at the float.

If I have a forced choice between radar and a chartplotter, I will go with radar.

I require radar on any boat that I take offshore. I do like a simple GPS with lat long. When I rendezvoused with the container ship last summer the simple GPS got me to the location. AIS did help me to spot the container ship 25 miles away.
