Having experienced heavy fog on the Maine coast, I see there are two important elements. You need to know where you are. This is obtained with radar or GPS. You need to know where everyone else is. This is obtained via radar and to some degree AIS. In my local waters in Casco Bay, Maine, some local ...

The stowing of the mast and not using the GPS was stupid. Transiting waters in darkness without all navigation lights working is stupid. Transiting waters with large commercial traffic in dense fog without AIS and/or radar is asking for it. The pilot deserves to loose his certificate. What a maroon!

While I know there are members with a Outrage 18's with 115hp off California I think there will be moments when you will want the torque/displacement of a 150hp.
