As a fan of the good English grammar, "please revert" really gets my back up!

Provocative as ever, Ryan! I do enjoy a good ShipCrunch blog entry :) As one of the few navigators in the world who has sailed on a genuine paperless bridge, I guess I'm what one would call an "ECDIS fan-boy", but I agree totally with your point about legislation - there is too much of it and it is unclear what applies to who. I draw the attention of others to www.ecdisregs.com - a project that will probably never be "finished" because the flag-state legislation just keeps shifting and updating! Sadly, I don't think there's a realistic solution, and there's no doubting that with the right training and implementation, ECDIS makes for a safer bridge with improved spatial awareness and more spare capacity.
