BoatSafe allows creation and communication of Float Plans
Online PR News – 29-September-2010 – – HarborLight Solutions LLC, a provider of smart phone applications, today announced the availability of its latest product release, BoatSafe for the iPhone. This product allows boaters and sailors to create a plan for their outdoor activities and provide email communication to other participants and emergency contacts. BoatSafe allows the user to document:
• Car/Trailer Information
• Vessel Information
• Excursion Information
• Marina Information
• Float Plan Notes
The user can then email the plan to the participants and/or emergency contacts.
Along with standard water safety, float plans provide a valuable tool for potential rescue in case of an emergency. Frequently, boaters worry about the number of life jackets on board or whether flares have expired, but fail to tell loved ones exactly where they will be and when is the time to start worrying.
As with any outdoor activity, events can happen no matter how prepared someone is. Simply hitting an uncharted rock can ruin a prop and engine. You could lose your balance while navigating rough seas. If loved ones know where you plan to boat, potential rescuers will have an idea of where you might be which could hasten a rescue.
BoatSafe is available in the App Store for the price of $0.99. Download it today.
