That's excellent !!!! I was going to say, 'go to JFK or La Guardia and take a 747 to LHR or LGW' but that's a much better answer

Brilliant, but surely swimming to Lands End would be quicker.

Just what I need, a ship captain needing to google to get to London. You do swim, right?


12 cylinders or walk

Where are the good old days when a captain could navigate his ship by the stars and a sextant? Nowadays it's all Google Maps and GPS. If those systems would ever crash and fail... all the navy and merchant fleets of the world would be in BIG trouble.

You mean like the captain of the Titanic .

Give the Skipper every piece of technology available, and make sure it never breaks.

I understand what you mean... but technology WILL break down one day. It's a fact of life. I've seen it in my own environment... people who own a Sat-Nav system... and one day it breaks down or makes a mistake or something... and they are (sometimes quite literally) in the woods. How hard is it to read a proper map? People just forget older but proven methods when something new comes along.

Don't get me wrong: I'm all for technological progress, but sometimes it overtakes everything and when it breaks down... the world is in trouble. Just use a bit of the old AND the new

I only prefer technology because I've heard that those old sea dog captains spend all day swigging rum and are too drunk to navigate, they need the autopilots
