This must be some other harbour bridge then?

Just a few points...
You've got a seriously dodgy camera there letting in all that light from the right!
And if it does happen to be a bit of 'early morning mist', another half hour on the pick .... just enough to put on the sunscreen... and we're sailing am I doin... out of trouble yet???

No one needs a big compass like that anymore and a for a few dollars a hand held would be fine in an emergency.

Island Hopper, I know its something close to your heart, but its not worth losing buisness over...

People are in a new age and if the old geer wants to be kept at all then its behoven on their exponants to try their best to keep them relevant.

All the best

I'm going to have to disagree. When all else fails you can rely on a compass, particularly a handheld lensatic one. I love the GPS's, chartplotter, and whatnot. But in a real emergency its the compass that is usually the only device that remains functional.
