Re: AIS very handy yesterday...foggy on SF Bay
I have the Standard Horizon VHF radio with AIS display and it is very useful. However, there are many fast moving, relatively large boats that don't transmit AIS. So, while it is a useful tool, it doesn't replace RADAR, and you still must practice good seamanship when in limited visibility (as I am sure you all do).
I am amazed at how fast some boats go when you can't see more than 1 minute ahead.
