I use radar whenever operating the boat. Need to continually educate myself on what one sees on the screen versus eyesight.

With over 20,000 hours in my log and an 11 week radar/arpa /marpa course certificate under my belt I'm quite comfortable using it only when needed.

As you know, as a licensed professional there is no excuse for an incident with your radar not on and being used for collision avoidance. No marine accident has 100% blame on one party (or at least VERY few). You would have some "Splainin" to do if a cigarette boat full of bimbos slammed in to your boat and your radar wasn't activated. Makes no sense, but thats the world we live in. You will be held to a higher standard because of your radar/arpa/marpa.

Greetings,
I'm with Mr. mp on this one. Radar on in all weather to correlate what I can see on the water with the corresponding return on the screen.

Regardless, during daylight hours I primarily rely on eyesight. Many things don't show up on radar.
