Ditto for the paper.
I have black and white photocopies of photocopies, which are fine and dandy for backup and study. All bad lumpy bit's on route
get a swipe of a highliter pen.
On my recent Vanuatu
trip the owner was amazed at what my large scale paper showed that the plotter did not.
Also I was less than impressed at the Iridium service
We had large section's of no service
, and people could not contact us.
We had people in Vanuatu
trying to contact us regarding a Cyclone on March 28.
They had been trying to contact us for 6 hour's prior to contact.
When they got hold of us it was 80 nm north of us and coming at us at 16mph.
We got into a hole OK, but the extra 6 hour's would have been good.
We did have an external antenna
for the unit as well.
Extra chain, can't have enough chain, and big, long rope
