    PHRF differences

    So one boat is 30 sec/mile and another is 63 sec/mile Can someone give me some real world example of performance difference. On a 10 mile course the difference is 330 sec so time on time would be 5.30 over say 2 hour elapsed so 2.15 an hour.

    Must Have!

    Complete bullshit and counter productive and author is not an owner! FFS They have clearly not read any common boat insurance policy at least in OZ. More importantly, does not consider limitation of liability legislation that exists in many jurisdictions.

    Covid 19 AIS game

    So in the Queensland, the official line is no boating unless it is essential. Fishing for food is essential as is travel for work purposes. So hop on Marine Traffic and see who has left the AIS on and perhaps is undertaking a trip that is not essential. Try it in your local area. Two make...
