    Are you assuming she wouldn't be nervous if you'd just disappeared off the screen shortly after having been on a collision course with a ferry?

    Quite the contrary. I wish I could claim to be nicer than that, but the truth is that I just didn't think of it in time.

    May well not have been a problem. As discussed at length on other threads the timing of transmissions means it sometimes doesn't represent reality, and if you zoom out the symbols for ships well clear of each other can intersect anyway (at least on the displays I use).

    Of course she may have plotted your transmissions and calculated the CPA.

    Is it possible the submarine was just practicing sneaking up on ferries?

    Nah - if they'd been doing that they'd have rammed it.

    I reckon you're all just trolling Captain Submersible.

    Of course. The fun part is watching the ill informed speculators trying to score points that they are clueless about!

    Must happen in all parts of life where the experienced and knowledgable get a laugh at the expense of the axe grinders.

    How about you, what is your personal part of life that you know about?
