As some of you know, I publicly asked the owner of Active Captain to nuke my account after witnessing some of his actions here on the forum. I wanted nothing to do with it.
Since then, I've been looking around for alternatives and found Waterway Guide. They have what I think is a pretty damn good web application for planning a trip:
Waterway Guide | cruising guide, fuel pricing, navigation alerts and news for boaters and yacht enthusiasts
It's all chart-based, with great information about bridges, anchorages, marinas, fuel prices, you name it. And, like AC, it offers users the ability to provide information about each. BUT, with Waterway Guide - you don't have to sign up, try to get hats, do a boat card program, etc. Waterway Guide seems like it's there to help YOU - not the other way around.
Basically, it's most of the functionality of Active Captain without the dude and the hassle.
They have an app for the iPhone - although it's rated pretty low (2-stars). I've not tried it yet. Of course, Active Captain's app is also rated pretty low (2-stars). So that's a wash.
Anyway, I just wanted to give everyone a heads-up. I'm happy I found this thing.
Feedback from those that have used it extensively would be great. So jump in.
