If accidents can happen on a clear day light on a nice summer day what's possible in the fog?
big ships are nothing to mess with fog just makes it worse

check out this actual video
YES THERE ARE 40 PEOPLE IN THE TOUR BOAT DEAD IN THE WATER



fog usually happens on nice sunny days when the wind dies down and the water is cold !
a fog bank can develop and you get stuck in it and you can hear other boats around you but can not see the bow rail
what you going to do
sound the horn
put up you radar deflector
and most of all
STAY OUT OF THE SHIPPING LANES
RADAR IS MORE AND MORE AFFORDABLE EVERYDAY IT MIGHT BE TIME TO MAKE THAT INVESTMENT

What do you suggest for a radar deflector for a small boat? I was thinking about that yesterday about 13 miles offshore about 10 feet of visibility waiting to a barge to come up on me.

Philadelphia 5-2-2012 6 died in this accident

there are affordable radar reflectors that can be installed to make your boat immediately stand out on any radar screen

this is a good example

http://www.landfallnavigation.com/sd152.html

be safe out there and be aware of the conditions that can cause FOG
