Fog still happens and it gets dark every night. These create two problems, piloting (Where are we?) and collision avoidance (What's out there?)
There are solutions to the first of these short of GPS that are workable (Log, lead, lookout and variations.) The problem of reduced visibility is less tractable, and makes a radar more attractive to me in terms of cost benefit. I'd rather have a small radar first and perhaps a primitive handheld GPS if needed for position finding second.
