【ドキッとしたAIS のトラブル、そして解消】


午前3時頃、自船のお知らせ、他船の位置を知るためのAIS が、突然動かなくなりました。安全航行の面から、このシステムは必要不可欠です。
明るくなって、ダグがマストの下にある VHS アンテナのコネクターを外し、よく拭いた後に差し込んだら、元に戻りました。ホッと一息です。

[ Trouble and Recovery of AIS ]

The winds and waves started to get higher from late afternoon yesterday. It is getting better now, but it is expected to get higher again later.

About 3 a.m., yesterday, AIS stoped suddenly. This equipment sends information about our boat and receives information about other boats, so that it is very very important for the safe voyage. We waited till dawn. Doug reached the VHS antenna located under the mast, and wiped the connector of the VHS. Then he connected it back on, and that solved the problem. We were so relieved.

Less than 800 NM from the goal now. We will try our best to continue safe voyage. Thanks for your support and encouragements!
