Thanks for 'lending' me your AIS
last night. That big container ship was quite close to me and did not respond to repeated 'motor vessel at position X' calls, until I got the vessel name from you. I have to get AIS
, receiver and transponder ideally.
We were aiming for St Simons but passed it by due to the thick fog
and to the fact that we'd made good time. We decided to continue to Fernandina in the hope that the fog would have burned off when we got there - thankfully it had.
For anyone making this passage
: we arrived at red 14 in the St Mary's channel around 40 minutes before high tide and it seems a good time to hit it, we got a gentle .5knt push into the inlet, then a gentle counter current going up to Fernandina.
