Default Proper lookout in fog

According to the Colreg's- Would this guy using this helmet be a
proper visual lookout in dence fog that you can not see more than 10
feet?

He has a flir helmet on, he is firefighter, but lets say your deckhand
borrowed his helmet.

He can see thru smoke, fog , darkness ect. Much better than the guy
donal put on the bow.

Here is what your deck hand would see if your boat can fly:

This helmet is better than a radar, but it is still a screen that
provide you visual information.

Should you follow the colregs and tell your deckhand to take off that
silly helmet and get to the bow and use your eyes and ears like the
book says.

Or would you let your lookout use the best equipment available? Like
radar.

Perhaps the colregs are outdated and need re-written, or perhaps they
are written to be interpeted by people that live by them.

Depends on how good you are at Errrr..... talking.

Give it your best shot.

The commerical marine units run about 12K, The headmounted systems
must cost less. Perhaps you should start a local vollenteer marine
Fire Dept before you call.

The Boston Police and the MA State Police have a few of these boats with FLIR
cameras. The "justification" is to be able to see people in the water. They're
awesome boats - I get to check them out because they tie up next to mine when
they take on fuel. It can be nerve-racking trying to park my 36 footer in a 40
foot spot on the face dock with the head of the local SWAT team on my bow, an
interceptor on the stern, and a dozen cops hanging around.

Why? Making a bad docking isn't a crime!

Try snuffing out your joint before you get to the dock next time.

Where do you think I got it?

Besides, smokin pot on the fuel dock is frowned on at any marina.

Not here... everyone *must* get stoned, including the people pumping
the fuel.
