Last of the dinosaurs
Certainly feel one when I think of my sextant training...
My guess is they'll look at deep sea stuff first, and make changes to the Collision Regs to accomodate.
Most crews do little maintenance between dry dock these days compared to years back. Bit like modern cars. So no issues there.
On oceanic trips eg across the bottom of the Pacific, there's not a lot to hit barring the odd berg and albatross. So days of paid crew effectively doing bugger all.
Automate it for several thousand boring miles, get it close enough to land and drop a few crew + pilot to bring her in and job done.
Short sea gets trickier with the volume of traffic. It would be much easier if everyone actually knew the Collision Regs and followed them, but there is no accounting for the stupidity of yachets/ribs, and supposedly trained navigators on ships who clearly don't even know where they are....
Somewhere in the English Channel....
"Ship on my starboard side"
"Do you know your position"
"Can you tell me my position?"
Occasions to numerous to mention...
And don't ask me about stories from my days in the RNLI..... seeing the worst of the Romford Navy.
I'd put my sextant box and Nories in my sou'wester but they won't fit
