Marine Navigation Safety harbor pilot
Last week I wrote about useful apps that I feel are beneficial in determining and enhancing Navigation Safety. Now let’s talk about apps and internet use that should not be used while navigating ships. Social media, auctions, games and email provide a distraction from conducting a safe navigation passage.
Can you imagine a bridge team member having the conduct of a vessel who decides to use one of these functions? What would you do? What rules and regulations are in place if this happens on the bridge of a ship? How should the Master (Captain) of the vessel react if he sees this? Let’s share some of our experiences to help others.
Next blog will be on State pilots and public interest.
