Fleet Tracking Apps

Have you reviewed any apps that allow you to keep track of “buddies” on the water if they have AIS? We have a club that rafts up often, and it can be good to keep track of vessels that haven’t arrived yet when the weather is a bit iffy. We currently use Google’s Latitude App, but would be interested to know of any better ones out there.

We have not yet tested those types of apps, but we’d like to hear from readers who have. Email practicalsailor@belvoirpubs.com.

Jack, I am on City Island, also. I have gone crazy for years, especially with a constsnt layer of brine shrimp and slime. This year I took Practical Sailor's advise and changed to COPPER SHIELD SCX(TM) - Multi-Season Boosted Ablative - 45% Copper by Blue Water Paints. I barely have to clean at the water line, and the keel is clean from May till September. The only downside is that you have to order it on-line, even though it is manufactured in NJ. I can't recommend it any highly.
