Are there still diesel boats? You can bet they know where everyone else is without AIS.

Re: Not using your AIS

I have an AIS receiver only and use it whenever I use my nav PC. One reason for not getting a transponder was definitely a concern about privacy. My wife and I usually boat together. Our kids are no longer at home. When we are boating our house is more vulnerable to burglary. Broadcasting that we are away via AIS locally and on the web is too great of a risk for me. For these same reasons, we do not post our activities that take us away from home on social media in real time. Some criminals are quite resourceful.

Modern non-nuclear ones are Fuel Cell based.
and the question to them is not "where" but "who", i.e. identifiying that there is something up there is the easiest part, identifying what it is, is where the fun starts.
