Just to clarify... My original posting on this topic refers to an article that appears in the Jan/Feb printed issue of Ocean Navigator magazine. I don't think the article is available directly online. However, it looks like you can get a free (digital) trial copy of the magazine on the ON wesite.

|sailaway21||I think you'll find that article to be a couple of years old. I expect someone with a subscription to ON will be along shortly to illuminate the issue for us.|

Ocean Navigator radar article
The Jan/Feb issue of Ocean Navigator has what I think to be an informative article dealing with the limitations of radar. Even if you have radar on your vessel it's easy to make (false) assumptions about how effective radar on other boats is in "seeing" you. In other words, all radar systems are not created equal and all have various limitations and capabilities. The ON article is worth a read if for no other reason than to stimulate some thought on the subject. It will certainly make me think twice on the water as to if and how my boat may appear on another vessel's radar (especially the big boys) in vaious weather and sea conditions. Best regards for a great New Year everyone.
