Keeping Track of Everything – part 2 …

Jeff Seigel, founder of ActiveCaptain, writes…

A couple of weeks ago we wrote a newsletter segment about how we keep databases of projects, logs, parts, and fuel purchases. It generated a lot of emails and responses. So we thought we'd dig into the subject a little deeper and give the next set of ideas about the things we've learned by keeping these databases at our fingertips over the last 13 years.

We're using off-the-shelf database tools to create our solution. While there are many solutions that are laptop or web-based, they have

Where in the world am I? Ah, that’s the great puzzle….

Apologies to Lewis Carroll for the mis-quote above, but we are so accustomed to knowing exactly where we are – or at least having smartphones and chart plotters telling us.

I have noticed that some power boat skippers and even sailors (hrmphh) plot routes perilously close to hazards or marker buoys. As if the GPS is so accurate that it can help you miss a hazard by metres; that the hazard marker hasn’t drifted since the chart in the plotter was last updated; or that the hazard itself hasn't moved – a sandbank for example.

We've learned some valuable lessons and will split them into a few newsletter segments to help others keep track of, well, everything. First, an overview of the things we database.

From the first moment we stepped onto our current boat in 2003, we've used

Anchoring Mathematics – again!

Jeff Seigel, founder of ActiveCaptain, writes…

This week we decided to reach into the archives and pulled out one of our most popular topics, an article from almost two years ago. Of the 250 newsletters we've written (which amazes us), the subject of anchoring math was in the top 5 for comments, arguments, and discussions. Since there have been so many new ActiveCaptain members in the last 2 years, we thought we'd revisit the subject to get everyone thinking about what really happens when you anchor using an anchor alarm.
