Major change to rules of navigation

Postby grigorib » Thu Apr 01, 2021 6:56 pm

Effective September 1, 2021 maritime rules of navigation will experience major change in centuries. Massive economic development in Southern hemisphere and political pressure of emerging markets resulted in an adjustment for universal priority of starboard course (to maintain speed and direction) to effectively reverse below zero degrees latitude giving such priority to port tack instead.

I guess we’ll need to adjust too when traveling

Maybe they should look at changing the nav markers as well?

Unnnn,.... call me a skeptic if you want, but this sounds to me like just another social media conspiracy theory designed to sew chaos into the orderly flow of vessels along the world's waterways. Or, more likely, just another April Fool's joke! Nice one, grigorib. I'll need an official citation to become a true believer. Just sayin'. :lol:

In the UK April fools jokes made after midday traditionally rebound on the joker.

It would be pretty silly to buy it now as Triple agent is enroute to dealers and is waaay better.
After losing proriders and designers company is switching to bi-yearly release cycle and warranty on legacy gear will be limited “void upon wet” so any old models will depreciate fast."
