I've always though it must be like having radar that you aren't sure is working properly! It might be showing everything, or it might only be showing big stuff, and it definitely isn't showing land, or most buoys etc. Of course radar is hard work to get the best out of it, especially if navigating short handed at speed, so isn't the perfect answer either.
But if I
was regularly travelling in fog I
would want Radar.
