Boatie


This best selling app for sailors and sea lovers is finally available for both Android and iPhone!

Boatie is a handy source of information for all who enjoy recreational boating in UK coastal waters - whether sailing or motoring, either in a motor boat, yacht or dinghy.

The 5 sections are:

Navigation: displays your current GPS position, speed-over-ground (SOG), course-over-ground (COG), as well as distance and heading to user-configurable waypoints. Waypoints can be stored in folders. A built-in compass also shows the bearing and distance to your selected waypoint.

Weather: displays the current UK weather general situation, inshore forecast, shipping forecast, and 4 day synoptic charts for the UK and NW Europe.

Tide: displays 7 day tide tables for over 700 primary and secondary ports from UK, Ireland and the Channel Islands. Also displays calculated sunrise and sunset times, the current moon phase and calculated moonrise and moonset times.

Tidal Stream: displays calculated tidal streams for common tidal diamond around the UK for up to 7 days. You can zoom into any specific area of the map around UK waters for more detailed tidal information.

Reference: an useful set of information easily to hand whether you're out on the water or doing your theory course. It currently includes:
- Day shapes
- Navigation lights
- Sound signals
- Beaufort scale
- Forecast terminology
- Inshore forecast areas map
- 5 year lunar calendar
- Signal flags
- Phonetic alphabet
- VHF channels
- IALA A buoyage

So, next time you are meeting your crew in the pub or planning your weekend on the boat, use Boatie to get the key information you need on your Android phone.

Please do let me know your feedback - particularly if you find problems (I will do my best to address any issue if you contact me directly) or if you have suggestions for future improvements. I'm also very grateful for the positive reviews entered in the Google Play store - it’s a great way of showing your appreciation.

Very good indeed This app is worth the money. It had a great facility to track waypoints and get weather. The tidal steam data is a good visual but you don't get sets and rates. That is one thing I would like to see added. Otherwise I love this app and never sail without it on hand.

Info available for free elsewhere As apps go this is rather expensive. Most of the information such as tides and weather is available elsewhere for free and often more detailed. I bought this for tidal streams info but this is just an overview and does not contain info on speed of the flow etc but does give a useful indication.

I bought this for tidal streams info but this is just an overview and does not contain info on speed of the flow etc and is only available for the current day. IWish l had bought beer instead.
