Must have hit pretty hard, I hope no ones injured too badly.
I think the first beaching I remember due to electronics
was way back in the early 70's when the New York
Yacht Club committee boat ran nicely onto Narragansett beach (near the entrance to the West Passage
of Narraganset Bay). The Captain
on board had set the auto pilot and then fell asleep, the power yacht did just what it was instructed to do and ran nice an straight onto the beach under power.
are only as good as the person using them, I like my paper charts
, using them forms a picture in my mind of the surrounding waters, something that's hard to do from a limited area screen
Had to hit pretty hard to snap a mast
