...blue with new Local Knowledge markers that is...
Last night I released the Local Knowledge marker type for ActiveCaptain
. Although there are more than 30 different categories of markers, only bridges, locks, dams, and ferries have been enabled right now. I want to make sure everything works before turning on the bulk of the categories.
We've pre-loaded more than 1,000 bridges, locks, dams, and ferries. Most contain information of interest to cruisers: restrictions, bridge height, VHF contact channel, etc. Of course, as restrictions change, anyone can update the info and it is instantly available to everyone.
Access to the web site is completely free. There is no advertising (which accounts for *real* reviews of marinas - now over 1,900 reviews worldwide). You have to be registered in order to get the detailed information or change any of it. The registration is to cut down on spam edits (it works).
Feel free to write me if you have specific questions.
If you'd like to see a quick display, here's the beginning of the Atlantic ICW. Marinas are red, anchorages are green, and the new Local Knowledge markers are blue:
