Hmmm... Firing on the USS New Jersey would just be a bit unhealthy... wouldn't it...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

For anything short of the Yamato class, yes.

Yet but you still would have to take Camden, even the cops drive with blinders on there.

On the Chesapeake commercial traffic often makes Securite calls (although they don't use that word) on channel 13 as they approach the Chesapeake Bay Bridge (Rt 50 / 301 across the Bay). I believe the issue is that the bridge obscures radar returns on the other side so they give a holler about 20 minutes out so everyone knows what is going on. Just to make things more interesting the channel jogs around Sandy Point just there so visibility isn't very good either.

My own most recent Securite call was while towing another sailboat a long distance. I made a call existing the Severn for the Bay and part way up the Patapsco.

The CG made one on my behalf near Key Bridge while they boarded me for an inspection while I was running single-handed stern tow. That was fun.

This guy was calling out the whole way under the bridge. His calling made me nervous as hell.

just read sailaway's posts

not sure how i missed them a few months back, but i was laughing so hard i can barely type...
between the greek shipping communication channel, to some ltcdr type aboard a DD about to be dispatched by an Iowa Class (BB) warship; i haven't laughed this hard in days.
for anyone that hasn't seen live fire drills aboard one of these magnificent ships, you are missing an awe inspiring experience. check your local listings (cable history channel has this stuff all the time)..or check if youtube has it.
growing up in hampton roads harbor, and regularly sailing out to look at the navy ships, i had the opportunity to watch them load one of these battleships in '68. shells the size of a vw beetle loaded aboard, bound for vietnam, oh and even before the days of DHS, the CG and Navy had swarms of gunboats (no..not the catamarans ) to keep the riff-raff away. i saw lots of interesting things in the 60's...
anyway... sail..thanks for sharing this.

By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest,second is by imitation, which is easiest,third is by experience, which is the bitterest.

With a beam wind I bet he was a little fidgety also.

I would think that a functioning AIS would cut down on the need for security calls and incidents like those described above. One of the neat things about AIS is that, unlike radar, it can 'see' around corners. It also identifies the problem targets by name, gives a CPA and a TCPA (closest point of approach and time to closest point), a description of the target (length, draft, speed, course), and lets you know whether the target is turning into or away from you. I have an AIS receiver on board, and will get a transponder as soon as the silly FCC gets off their beaureaucratic rear ends and approves them for us on US recreational boats.
