Even maritime has gone digital .. thankfully. I am from a family of sailors and remember being in the fog with just a blow horn and wondering how far the ocean floor was from the boat's rudder. As the saying goes, 'you've come a long way, baby!'
This is my brother-in-law's boat. We frequently travel over Nantucket Sound to the Vineyard and Nantucket harbors during the summer. Digital instruments make these jaunts less stressful should the weather change quickly.
