I am signed up with Active Captain and have been for a couple of years. I've made enough comments on there to get the hat. I like ours better, tho. But AC has started a second website called EBoatCards. Your Active Captain login gets you into the website. EboatCards is more of a social medium for boaters. In fact, the backbone is Facebook but it is separate from Facebook and it's ads. There are groups being created everyday like "Gunkholers" and "Cruising Cuisine". I've joined the "Tartan" owners group but it is very dead. Only one member. Crying or Very sad

Yeah, I know. Just what we all need. Another time sucking website. User

We find it a valuable resource for cruising in general, but specifically for traveling the ICW and the Bahamas. It provides user comments on marinas and anchorages as well as potential hazards (obstructions, shoaling, etc). The one potential problem with using it while you cruise is that you have to be connected to the internet. This obstacle is solvable (at least on the IPAD) by using PolarviewMX (or Navimatics Charts&Tides) which downloads a copy of the Active Captain database so that you can examine the data offline. The database can be refreshed when ever you can connect to the internet.
