colour blindness & navigation
they say that one in ten males are colour blind..... i`m one of those & tend to be colour blind in the red spectrum. this can be very daunting & i lack confidence especially at night. any colours that have red in them such as purple, mauve, marroon etc. really fool me...funny really, as i used to be a professional photographer, but colours in nature don`t clash & i never had problems. but put me in a photographic studio & i`m lost. in australia they are replacing the cones & the cans on top of poles with lights. the shape of the cones & cans in daylight were great for me....even at night i could shine a spotlight on them & pick out the shapes. if it was triangular i new it was green. with the lights i really can`t tell the difference between red & green until i get very close to them. i was wondering if others have the same problem & if anyone has any ideas to help improve my situation.
stuck in broken bay building up funds to fix my just bought adams 24. intend sailing eastcoast australia, if i can ever pluck up the courage to go outside the heads!!
