Re: AIS Everywhere

problem is, in some places, the local traffic, ie, fishermen in pangas in mexico , have not the ability to purchase nor use this tool. the large stuff is visible, and pangas and locals are not . even radar doesnt show these lil guys.
to be hit by or to hit a mexican panga means your life as you know it ENDS. they OWN you. keep your eyes open at all times and do not be fooled by fancy tools that aree not adequate to find everything on the surface of the ocean.
