Internet Delivery Of Local Notices To Mariners

A nice example of how the internet is improving life at sea can be found in California where the US Coast Guard is moving to issuance of the Local Notices to Mariners (LNM) exclusively via the Internet. Now if they would just start using the Ghost Guard as well….
“For many years, each U.S. Coast Guard district has printed and mailed LNM free of charge to any mariner requesting a subscription. LNM provide important safety information; however, the cost of printing and mailing has become prohibitive. Technology now allows us to provide LNM in a timelier and less costly manner via the Internet. All individuals are encouraged to register for List Server notification on the Navigation Center’s Website, so when LNM are posted for the district(s) in which you are interested, you will receive automatic notification of their availability.”
