No need for crew

Looks like the boats of the future will not need either crew or captain. Check the link.

Hopefully the computer on this "... autonomous 700-ton naval vessel ..." knows the ColRegs better than the US Navy-trained officers!

Re: No need for crew

Yes. Autonomous is the future. Fewer collisions, possibly lower cost too. Etc.

It will allow us to keep on cruising and or sailing much longer than sailors in the generations before autonomous.
