Re: spot the boatman!

I've just found another reason to hate Spot. There is no scale on the map to see how close he is sailing. I had to take his position coordinate into Google Earth to find out that he was 1.75nm off the coast

Two miles off a lee shore and asleep with a known dodgy autopilot. Yep, sounds about right. But I already knew he was a braver man than I.
