“Nobody likes Surprises!”
Want to avoid a close encounter with a big tanker or ocean-going
bulk carrier? They navigate our narrow waterways like Rosario
Strait and Boundary Pass and deserve your utmost respect.
They typically travel at 16-20 knots, following the navigation
rules and tracks established by the Vessel Traffic System (VTS).
They can take two to three miles to come to a stop, and their
ability to maneuver in narrow channels is restricted.
With an inexpensive AIS (Automatic Identification System)
aboard, you will know the location, course, speed, and closest
approach of these leviathans. Our two hour seminar will tell
you all about AIS and the VTS system.
