Wow, aevnty60, I am sorry that you have had bad experiences with Active Captain. We have used the information in it a great deal while cruising, and have made some super boating friends because of it.

Best to you.

Stupidville, isn't that down the road from Doucheville? Social networking isn't a bad thing imo. Sure as hell has some knickers cinched up tight. We keep in touch with quite few other cruising families via social networking. To each there own.

Re: Cool new android app

I have successfully shunned social networking(twitter, faceboook, etc) to this point although I am on LinkedIn for professional reasons. I find it boring and pointless to share my life with strangers and I keep up with my family the old fashioned way; face to face or pick up the phone and call them.

I do see advantages to social networking when the participants have some thing like sailing in common.

BTW, aeventyr60, Sailnet is a form of social networking and your response smacks of hypocrisy.

Stupid is as stupid does...in Stupidville!

I envy you any closeness (geographically) with your family. Our son and three grand sons are a four hour drive and our daughter and two more grand children are a 9 hour plane ride.

If it were not for FB I would only "see" the ones out west once a year.

Shalom

Actually, Rik, my family is 8-9 hours away. I see them 2 or 3 times a year. We do talk on the phone often but my business involves computers so I generally do not use them too much after I leave work.

We all get to have our opinion. For me the smart phone/social networking/augmented reality thing is crap. That's the hard cheese....also the part of AIS through the cell network, uhhh just stupid. If you have to have a smart phone to find your boat at night....well maybe you shouldn't be out on a boat or are you just that stupid? I'd rather meet folks face to face, sure SN is great, but really social networking while your on your Saturday day sail....

Re: Cool new android app

Well, I guess I'm an outlier on this one. I know I can be a curmudgeon, and, admittedly a sometimes hypocritical one at that because I do have a chart plotter. But, this seems another step toward turning boating into a video game. I already think there are too many folks staring at screens instead of looking around.

But, I do realize it has value. And whatever floats your boat. It's just that I don't expect to be downloading it anytime soon.

Re: Cool new android app

Not likely to use this while sailing but I do see the advantages of using this at anchor to see what friends may be around or to lookup marina info on active captain. I may even use it to identify a nav aid on the water that may be difficult to pick out.

I certainly do to see using the social networking aspect while sailing.

If you do not like it then fine, you do not have to use it but do not disparage others for using it. Yes, we get it, you like to do things the old fashioned way.
