Me, for a start. One would look pretty stupid if one was simply "lost" and had to call for help. It could easily happen if the chartplotter went down (mine has in the past) and visibility was poor. If you know roughly where you are and roughly the direction to go and can follow a compass course (assuming it is reading correctly) then you can get to a safe place. If you can't do that then there is a very strong argument for having some kind of boat operator's licence (which we don't want).

Watch for VHF interference, some of the cheap LEDs don't have the electrickery fitted to prevent that. Easily cured by switching off though.

ok thanks for the info on that will bear that in mind if I have a problem, but will only be used will mooring up or anchoring so shouldn't be a problem.

Have had a similar problem with mains LEDs at work when customers by cheap lamps that flicker when switched off as they do not have diodes fitted to them

Enjoy ‘the messing about’ think I might have a play on the kayak in Bembridge Harbour as long as not too windy... fingers crossed it will settle down again soon.
