When the Strait of Tiran was famous

Been though the Strait of Tiran a few times. I only vaguely understand of the history of that area.

Good short post here by Kevin Drum.

At night it’s hard to see the lighted nav aids in the Strait of Tiran because there are often big yachts anchored just inside that are all lit up with powerful deck lights. Washes out the lighted aids.
