Thumbs up Man Overboard App makes practice fun!

I just tripped over a great little app called Man Over-board in the App Store under Navigation which I downloaded to my iPhone. I used it on San Francisco bay over the weekend. Whilst it is clearly intended for use when someone goes overboard for real, I used it for practicing MOB technique with my crew. It actually made practice fun! Wish they did an Android version as some of us do not have iPhones.

Oops! Sorry! I am English. 'Tripped over' in our language means 'stumbled upon'. Checked on the USA usage which appears to mean 'drug-fuelled'! No wonder you were surprised!

Actually I just like the initial pun since "tripping" is how many sailors go OB in the first place! They stumble too, just before going over the side...

Especially if they are drug-fueled!

Re: Man Overboard App makes practice fun!

Wow! I have only just joined the Forum and am beginning to understand that its a pretty fun group!
Economic circumstances entail me doing my own maintenance now and I am looking forward to getting tips and hints from other members. I sail a Sabre 32 (1985 vintage) so there is plenty to do!
