Re: AIS now compulsory for foreign yachts in Thailand

You could guarantee that once the technology became available the control freak bureaucrats would start working on the legislators to make it compulsory on all vessels. Start raising hell with your local member, senator etc right now, it's coming to get you sooner or later.

Re: AIS now compulsory for foreign yachts in Thailand

Indonesia now have initiated the same rule as Thailand however the customs staff don't even know what AIS looks like , so far I have been asked on 5 occasions to show my MMSI "certificate" when clearing into Indonesia, what a joke

On a separate point , I have seen local Singapore/Batam Ferrys operating with their AIS turned off and large container ships stationary transferring at night with AIS reading false data.

The whole AIS system is a joke.
Only thing to trust is your own radar , and a good visual lookout,

I also have concern in regards to safety as your vessel is now an easy target for piracy when in Philippine or Indonesian waters

Re: AIS now compulsory for foreign yachts in Thailand

I am in Langkawi Malaysia at the moment, about to do a delivery back to Australia, and yes AIS transmitter is compulsory for Indonesia. we are going through the hassle of installing a stand alone unit.

Nah, wrong guy. I'm talking about the big kahuna himself. You know the guy who led the "coup battalion" until a few years ago. Wink.

When you go to the Port captains office they ask for your MMSI Number, you must appear on their screen. No more CAIT. I met some Germans that just got here, told us he was kept in port until he had the AIS fitted, and he was CHECKING OUT. when he went in a couple of days later to get his clearance the girles did not even have the computer turned on, checked his Receipt for the new AIS and gave him his papers.

It wouldnt matter in Thailand. A Thousand Bhat ($30-$40) and a friendly smile can make all sorts of problems disappear.

They haven't done this at Benoa ( well to me anyway), and don't even start me on the Cait , it seems to be changing week to week. Just ask part of the adventure .

Re: AIS now compulsory for foreign yachts in Thailand

Damn great news! AIS is a very valuable bit of kit.
It should be compulsory in every country!

What? The USCG in San Francisco Bay (located on Yerba Buena Island) hardly ever monitors "B" grade AIS. They watch over the "big stuff" rather than recreational boats. Monitoring VHF channel 14 here provides plenty of clues of large-ship movements because of required checkpoints.

I'm with you Mark, I fully do not understand why people struggle with the AIS thing.

The USCG monitoring them is not whats beneficial. I dont care what they monitor. The big benefit with AIS is that we, recreational boats can see everyone else and they us, who has it. That's where the real benefit of having AIS is.

In SF Bay, and other crowded areas where yachts and shipping must co-exist, AIS is of limited value much of the time. But, in such areas a careful visual watch is of great value.

Once out the Gate and at sea, the value increases, and when everyone has it, th value is huge. I'm with MarkJ on this o ne.
