    Jeremy, you wrote:
    "I hope that many small vessels spend the money on AIS. I think that they should be able to rig an AIS to sound an alarm, for the sleeping solo sailor especially, indicating an approaching vessel and also warning that ship of their presence given the often poor radar returns of fiberglass boats. I am confident that it would make the oceans a bit safer for all."

    In the its-a-small-world category, the day after you wrote this, there was a semi-comical account of AIS on a small yacht here:

    I liked his description of his AIS-linked alarm system.
