AIS revisited & other stuff

04 September 2010
Andrew
My enthusiasm for using AIS as a defence strategy are previously reported, but today, a big honking container ship was coming right at us. We initially slowed down to let him pass ahead by more than the 0.2 miles the AIS indicated, even though he was still over the horizon. But then a funny thing happened - he changed course. Wow, someone on their bridge was watching out, and saw little ol' Mulan up ahead before they had a visual. Cool. Yesterday, a freighter passed us that listed its length in mile terms - 0.179nm. It was like watching a small mountainous nation stated slide by. Today we are motoring NNE again in search of wind. Stay tuned. The GRIBs indicate that is where it will be later today. Paul caught a fish this morning - we think it is an albacore tuna, but it doesn't show in Grant's Guide. Maybe Aussies don't do albacore.
