Heh.. it's instantly recognisable to any blue-water yacht sailor.. tho' I can see how it would confuse all you landlubbers!

I noted with interest, that in the picture of the reflector on the yacht mast in that article, the owner has it mounted incorrectly (which is rather typical for power-boaters, I might add
).. in the (essentially) 2D world of ocean sailing, it needs to be in the "rain-catcher" position in order to function as intended. In space, of course, that's not such an issue.

That's looking very good, Smivs.. I wouldn't mind seeing a mixture of this and Cheyd's buoys in the core game, perhaps according to TL or economy level..
