Video from JUNK: Ships log #2

Our second video from JUNK. Marcus explains how they spot other boats, which "sometimes sneak up on you...."

Collision with an ocean liner ranks high on a list of boaters' worst nightmares. To avoid this, Ships carry an AIS receiver (Automatic Identification System)-- mandatory safety equipment that allows ships to communicate their location.

Marcus also tells us how JUNK's configuration helps ward off seasickness. A fantastic feature for our two sailors....
