image“I wanted to put here in this blog the description of the things I come across on my voyages” says Velu, a ship’s captain, on his blog. Recent;ly he discussed AIS, ECDIS and Radar in familiar terms:

“Of all the crappy equipments that I have seen on the ships over the years, the AIS by far has to be the uniformly crappiest of all equipment… A few years back, one of the nightmares of the ships master was that of the duty officer wouldn’t even look outside because of the Radar. Now because of AIS feeds into the ECDIS, the chap isn’t even going to look into the Radar!”
