Downloading the Navigation Rules begs the question:

Is it legal to have an electronic copy of the NavRules aboard to meet the 12M+ requirement for carrying a copy?

Personally, I have the paperback, but it does pose an interesting idea...

But even more interesting is the idea that simply having them on board means that someone has read them and knows the contents.

In the digital age... at some point digitally based resource median will be accepted and desirable because it can be constinuously updated in real time.

A tide table or chart is a perfect example... of how this makes sense and will replace the printed versions... which you can of course print at will... can't you?

I carry a computer print out of the rules and the CG inspector said nothing to the contrary. Especially since it came from the USCG web site. The rules are rules no matter how they are aquired/produced.

As well, for the benifit of guests , I carry in a 3 ring binder procedure's for hailing vessels or distress calls, local VHF channel uses, Requirements-Nav lights, Beaufort scale, procedures for entering countries and so on..........._/)

Del, but what about not having a printout at all? I was kind of wondering about that. Just having it in a PDF file or downloaded in some way so as you could see it on the computer, but not having it in paper form.

Wonder what they would say?

CG inspector? Do you have an inpected vessel, or was that a courtesy check?

Sean, We have found that the interpretations of regulations vary considerably from one boarding officer to another and if you could ask several you might not get the same answer from each. A lot depends on our attitude as to what they accept and what they will consider an infraction. Technology typically moves far ahead of implementation and probably by the time the regulations change to reflect the technology, the technology will have evolved even further.
