Re: AIS phantom ship

Over in the support forum, they said that AIS transponders all have their own embedded GPS, and will not accept the sentences from an external GPS, either real-time or pre-recorded. So my proposed...

Re: AIS phantom ship

What OP describes could be all-too-easy to do, either on purpose or as an innocent mistake.

For instance, OpenCPN has a plugin that records and plays back NMEA instrument data. It can also share...

Re: cleaning out water tanks

I don't have nearly the expertise of some of these other guys, but I've used Peggie's procedure on my own little boat at the beginning of every season. In reading up on her procedure, one of the...

Re: Sailboat hits Power Line in Cocoa, Florida!

I think there's a real learning opportunity here, especially if there was an arc without physical contact. If they anchored under the wires, there could have been an opportunity for a static charge...

Re: Sailboat hits Power Line in Cocoa, Florida!

The main mast has smoke coming off of it, suggesting that it may have been the contact point for the arc. The mizzen is falling because the cabin below it is engulfed in flames, burning and melting...

Re: Sailboat hits Power Line in Cocoa, Florida!

Although the linked news story says they "hit" the power lines, based on the lack of rig damage on some of the early pictures, I would not be surprised if the high voltage arced to the top of their...

Re: New AIS Rule

The really big ships are often restricted in their ability to maneuver. If I'm in the channel, then I'm always the give way vessel even if under sail. The channel belongs to them. If you stand on in...

Re: New AIS Rule

I am not sure why you think AIS is primarily for offshore. It has great benefits in highly trafficked areas. My AIS is receive only, but I think that an AIS transponder could be much more effective...

I am not sure why you keep bringing this up. Are you suggesting that those who pay more taxes should have privileges that others don't? Because IMO that's exactly the sort of attitude that is...

Re: Delaware Bay May 2015

Are you still planning to head out May 1? Looking at all the boats blocking me in and the total lack of yard work done on any of those boats, I'm not sure I can be launched in time. :mad:

Re: VHF DSC Handheld with AIS?

That sounds like an issue with your dongle, and Windows. You would have had the same problem setting up any other PC software. There's no question that having the GPS built into the iPad makes it...
