Some time ago while randomly bouncing around the internet I tripped across the Queen's Harbour Master website for the nearby port, and signed up to the navigation warning mailing list out of curosity. Most of the bulletins posted are mundane ones along the lines of "Mariners are advised that bouy wotsit has been reported as unlit", "Cancel previous nav warn, bouy wotsit is now correct". Occassionally a more interesting one turns up, such as one last year which warned about a "crash test boat controlled explosion".
Today the following landed in my inbox...
NAV WARN 99/99
Example Test Message - Not to be published .
- This is an example notice to show many of the formatting options available.
A single return signifies a new paragraph in the text however
- each new line created with a double return from the previous line creates a new numbered bullet point.
- Remember that important sections of the notice can be highlighted by placing around the text to make it bold.
- All notices are based on a numbered list which cannot be switched off, however it may sometimes be necessary to create a second smaller list, this can be done by placing a single return between each line and starting each line with a hash.
