    Re: Colregs, Was: Explanation by Mr. Stark needed
    From: Steven Wepster

    In an ideal world a safety margin of at least 150 feet (50 m) behind a
    yacht would be respected. I do not tow a log in inland or inshore waters,
    only at sea. The navigation situation in the S North Sea is quite complex,
    with sandbanks, coastal traffic, yachts, fishermen, commercial vessels
    heading in and out of the busiest port in the hemisphere, and often
    sub-optimal visibility. Accurate navigation is essential and I consider a
    log as essential for that. I am aware that GPS is much more accurate than
    DR, but I am not willing to rely on only one source of navigational
    information. I hope that the judge in court will forgive me for towing a
    line with equipment.
