Re: Boat Cards: Pompous & Anal or A Good Idea?
I travelled around many Islands with a couple on another boat who had printed up boat cards. It was embarassing to watch how many store owners, other cruisers, taxi drivers, custom officials, passersby and anyone else not quick enough to avoid a card ending up getting these boat cards. I'd be more discerning as well and have to admit that several cards I was encumbered with disappeared once I got back aboard.
As I said, I go through about 12 each year, mostly to service vendors and folks in my home marina. Otherwise, only if asked.
I also collect a few cards in my loose-leaf ship's log; again, mostly vendors and marina mates. I could put them in some app... and then I'd drop the phone in the water (3 so far).
