"RULES OF THE ROAD" AMENDMENT
There has been an Amendment to the "Rules of the Nautical Road" which addresses DISTRESS SIGNALS.
NAUTICAL LOG has posted the exact MIN 1781 (M+F) as received just now from MCA in UK. MCA has a new distribution system for its M Notices as of OCTOBER 01, 2009. These can now be received from email@example.com as described in MSN 362 (M+F).
Once registered the M Notices are sent as each is issued so that you are always up-to-date as required by IMO Regulations.
As a result of requests for explanation of the meaning of (M+F) This indicates;
"Notice to all Owners, Masters, Skippers, Officers and Crews of Merchant Ships, Fishing Vessels, Pleasure Vessels, Yachts and Other Seagoing Craft."
