Computer charting and navigation
systems are exciting innovations for boaters. With detailed, color
charts and capable software to display and manage them, boaters

chart plotter and handles an array of functions from weather forecasting
"Red sky at night, a sailor's delight..."
This simple rhyme was probably the first marine weather forecasting
tool you used. It's a good one--red skies indicate dry air to
the west and fair weather on the way--but, before venturing offshore,
additional weather information is imperative. For comprehensive,
current, reliable information, marine weather fax is the standard; new tools
make it possible to obtain information directly

and Current Prediction
Tide and current prediction applications
are powerful tools that can instantly predict both tide and tidal
currents for thousands of locations around the world. They take
care of the tedious work of calculation so you can go have fun instead of worrying about correction factors, whether to add or
subtract an hour, or other details.
Whether you're an old salt or
a novice, you and your family can improve boating skills with education and
training software. From training courses in weather
forecasting to interactive multimedia simulators, educational
applications can help to make you a better boater or help professionals
obtain more advanced Coast Guard license ratings.
