Ship in the distance

On the right, just above the rail, is the ship Mol Bravery, crossing six miles ahead. Have seen many ships this trip, they are easy to deal with mostly due to AIS.

Fortunately, have not seen many fishing boats so far. Have been avoiding the banks where they are likely to be working as much as possible. Fishing boats usually don't have AIS transmitters, the smaller ones don't show up well on yacht radars, and there are all sorts of warnings about small unlit fishing boats near this coast.
