Welcome Wednesday!

Excuse me, are you a seafarer? Oh, you are? Have you heard about Amver? You know, Amver. The global voluntary search and rescue program. You haven't? Oh, well you should learn a little about it. Your ship can easily enroll in this program. Once you enroll the crew sends a sail plan and then periodic position reports. Why do this?
