  • When are they going to extend the coverage so all us sailors in the west can benefit?


  • Mike, I’m not sure if you’re referring to Wiley or ActiveCaptain for western support (and I assume you mean western UK). ActiveCaptain is user-generated. We can handle data from any location on earth. We currently have a fair amount of data for the UK although it can always be better. Anchorages especially seem to be needed.

    We’ve concentrated on building the US data over the last couple of years. We had to start somewhere and because we’re based in the US, it made sense to start there. The model has worked spectacularly. Check out the US coastline, especially along the intracoastal waterway on the east coast – loads of anchorages, boat ramps, inlets, bridges/bridge openings, along with hazards (especially important as dredging has been delayed or non-existant), and every marina that exists. As each person has helped fill in their local area, the databases have filled up. We now have the largest databases of marinas, anchorages, boat ramps, bridges, etc including the largest database of marina and anchorage reviews. By largest, I mean by any metric – not some play on words.

    That exact thing can and should happen for the EU too. Our new relationship with MaxSea and Furuno are helping to make it happen quickly. There are some new features coming out for the Paris Boat Show that MaxSea asked us to commit to for international support – and we’re doing all of it.

    So check out what we have. And get others to help fill in the missing data. It’s a good model that works really well.
