Mapquest for Boats

I am moving a sailboat from Indian Harbor Beach, down the ICW, across the Okechobee Canal, and up the ICW to Punta Gorda, FL.
I went looking for a Mapquest for boating. The only site I found was Clicktoboat.com, which seems to be defunct.
Is there any current Mapquest style site for boating?

Re: Mapquest for Boats

Mapquest? Theres OpenCPN for windows, also several others available for android or apple for your cell.
All the charts are available to download and print yourself as well from the NOAA site.

Re: Mapquest for Boats

Thanks,
Just thought there might be something more like Mapquest where estimated times, alternative routes, etc. are provided.
I guess the charts are still the best.

Re: Mapquest for Boats

oh, i see what you're looking for. Charts, tide charts, and a pencil. Or get Open CPN its free. Its a plotter. You can do all you want to do, just the times are going to depend on your vessel speed.

Re: Mapquest for Boats

+1 on both Active Captain and Cruiser net.Both really good sites for planning while sitting at anchor or on the dock. I also use Polar Navy to plan routes, estimate travel time, etc. Typically I find myself going back and forth between Polar Navy and Active Captain.
