RADAR CAN GET YOU INTO TROUBLE OR KEEP YOU OUT OF IT

Commander, E. S. Quilter

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: There are many things that radar will not do. It will not: Correct out-of-date charts; take soundings; determine the force of a current before that force takes effect; time flashing lights, or a ship’s run between two points; tell at a glance how another vessel is headed; interpret and answer whistle signals; apply the Rules of the Road; or write the log. And it will not keep anybody out of legal difficulties if he comes to grief from failure to use radar and all other available aids to navigation. Strangely enough the new Rules of the Road will not make any concession to a ship that has radar!
