Please someone tell me! Is there danger in the VHF and the depth sounder? The radio waves are causing my brain to broach!

Just wait until Microsoft gets heavily involved in Marine Navigation.
There you are, sailing along, and you start a pirated copy of "Captain Ron" on the Windows GPS tablet, and the next thing that you know-
Beyond it is another dimension—a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into... the Blue Sea Of Death.
For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear.
You can't control the Horizontal. You can't control the Vertical. You can't even edit the Registry...




Oh, anything new about Island Packet?

Re: Island Packet Closing Doors?

I'm told, Hake Marine, parent of Seaward Yachts, announced it was buying IP yesterday. They say they are going to continue to market all three brands, Seaward, Island Packet and Blue Jacket.

Do you really expect anything from reality on this thread?

Re: Island Packet Closing Doors?

Didn't you see the announcement? It is hanging on the Brooklyn Bridge facing south towards NY Harbor. By the way--the bridge is for sale. I can get you a really good deal on it.

Yam, you poor deluded fool; the bridge can't be for sale. I already put a deposit down on it last month.

My reliable sources tell me that SpaceX has bought Island Packet and that all new IPs will be designed to be used as rocket landing platforms.

That's OK I have the title to the land on each end of it.

Meanwhile far as Island Packet we are still getting made-up crap (it's just made up crap till there is official word otherwise).

I'm hanging around to watch the skeptics eat crow.

While I've said from the start that this hurt the IP brand, I believe the sale happened.
