I have not been on yachts, mega yachts, tugs and ships where all methods of Nav information was not included, considered and used for Nav decisions. (Including AIS)

Class B transceivers DO have a lag in display which makes them suspect. But not ignored. The Mk 1 eyeball is being often overlooked on many vessels and is being replaced in a mistaken over reliance on electronics, plotters and displays.
