I have a question right away that I hope you might be able to answer. Not about ECDIS though

Planning a trip the the Med next fall and not decided on wether or not to cross the Biscaye or do the inland waterways of Germany and France. From what I saw on some swedish website, from this year you would need a separate certificate for the VHF -issued by the "UBI" in order to go through the german canals and that the usual SRC woulnt be sufficient. Can you tell me if this is indeed the case, or if itīs just bad info?
Sorry for replying so late. I haven't assumed queries on my hello topic. Anyhow, I will try to investigate that problem when being back in the office next year. (means next week)

Bästa hälsningar
Jens

Additionally to the short answer given by GordMay I guess I should explain ECDIS a bit more.
ECDIS is an electronic navigational tool which improves significantly the safety of navigation. That means not only to interface between positioning systems and the sea chart. That is performed by other Electronic Charts Systems as well. Rather the use of official Electronic Navigational Charts (ENC) and the functionalities (1) which can be employed when sailing with those charts are the main improvement compared to traditional navigation.

The standard for ECDIS is been defined by IMO and the standards for ENC are defined by IHO. Complex test and control routines guarantee high technical standard and permanently updated charts.

(1) e.g. you can specify a minimum required water depth and the system will alert you when getting too close to that water depths line, or the next deeper line if the current ENC doesn't support your request. That make sure that you are always on the safe side. It will work too, if the presentation for those water depths line has been switched off. Means ECDIS employs very much the magic of vector data.


For more information refer to my homepage.

“... Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) means a navigation information system which with adequate back-up arrangements can be accepted as complying with the up-to-date chart required by regulation V/20 of the 1974 SOLAS Convention, by displaying selected information from a system electronic navigational
chart (SENC) with positional information from navigation sensors to assist the mariner in route planning and route monitoring, and if required display additional navigation-related information ...

... System Electronic Navigational Chart (SENC) means a database resulting from the transformation of the ENC by ECDIS for appropriate use, updates to the ENC by appropriate means and other data added by the mariner. It is this database that is actually accessed by ECDIS for the display generation and other navigational functions, and is the equivalent to an up-to-date paper chart. The SENC may also contain information from other sources ...”

@ GordMay, post 20
Thanks for enhancing my popular explanation with the academic definition.

How deep should we dive in?

I think referring to other available sources is sufficient,isn't it.

Understanding ECDIS

The IMO minimum requirements for ECDIS systems (ECDIS Performance Standard) are defined in IMO Resolutions A.817(19), MSC.64(67) and MSC.86(70) for systems installed after 1 January 1996 but before 1 January 2009. Systems installed on or after 1 January 2009 have to be conform the the standard defined in IMO Resolution MSC.232(82).

Read more: IMO Minimum Requirements

That is more accurate as the link to A.817 only.

Hallo Jens,

you might be interested in contributing some of your expertise to a free software navigation system for leisure boats capable of displaying ENCs, CM93, BSB and GRIB files - OpenCPN - developed in cooperation with forum members on this site here; homepage is here, German community here

Thanks for pointing me to that. I have downloaded the latest version recently. 'will see if my normal workload and time allow a further work.

That is not a joke and not a bad information.
An UBI certificate is needed on German and France inland waterways when using VHF. You can use Inland Waterways radio certificates of certain other countries if you own one (Sweden was not on the list).
http://www.wsv.de/fvt/ubi/merkblatt_zeugnisse_allg.pdf page number 3 last line excludes SRC from Inland Waterways.

Hope that was of some help
Jens

Unfortunately I just left the Baltic two weeks ago. Beautiful sailing the last 4 months between Flensburg to Rostock but now I'm off to the Canarys and then across the Atlantic.
Have fun, enjoy this great forum and I will probably be back next summer!!
