Re: Channel fever
In Response To: Channel fever ()

This seems to be a good discussion, and I like what I've read so far. Pamela, you are correct that we are to be cosidered invisible. But most likely any ships radar IS on! And I find it very hard to believe that on any vessel there was noone on the bridge!! I gotta wonder about the validity of such stories. All professional mariners that I know of are extremely cautious. Accidents do happen of course, but the image of poorly trained, negligent ship crews just does not equate to my experiences. Cheers, MH
