I try to handle the electronics and communication areas with my limited knowledge. These include the computers, Internet, single side band radio, VHF radio, hand-held devices for back up, navigation equipment, etc. I, too, have a lot to learn and it is constantly changing. Since I have never had a HELP Desk to call when my equipment is on the blink, I have learned to apply my root cause analysis skills to figure out what needs to be done to fix the issue.
Sometimes your sailing plans have to be put on hold until you can solve whatever the day’s issue is! It is somewhat like building a new boat one part at a time! That is why we have so many spare parts on board.
