Practical Boat Owner (PBO) is one of my favourite magazines. It’s reviews are excellent and it often has interesting cruising accounts. It’s focus on UK/French destination is less relevant to us in Australia, but even without that, there usually enough in there to justify the cover price. Even better, much of the magazine is online. There is a sample issue online, as of this writing, the January issue is here.
In that issue, there is a good article about AIS. I’ve been thinking about getting AIS on a new plotter I am purchasing later this year in preparation for next year’s cruising adventure. Does anyone have any experience with it around Australia?
