Gee-ar Dee ,

I must go down to the sea again

Acting on the reviews I read before downloading this app., I have not bothered to try others because this one does it all for me. Many a time on the coast or on rivers I have located vessels and information about them which completely satisfies my nosiness. The only thing lacking are the names of the ships crew!!! I tracked my brother-in-law's cruise around the north of Norway and have viewed ships at my local port. I can see what is in the mid-Pacific in real time or in port anywhere in the world. For good measure, I have downloaded the computer version as well. This is a great app with lots of information which I highly recommend to all shipping buffs.

Camelford Tim. An Astonishing and amazing App!

A good friend sailed around the whole UK, now sailing in the Bay of Biscay put me onto this App so I could track him. App is fantastic! Worldwide, yet zooms to fine detail. One-click gives details and photos of Ships. Great entertainment & educational value. Found where my local fish&chip shop catches its Fish!
Moving on, I am now a volunteer watchkeeper for the National Coastwatch Institution. From a cliff top observation point, I log ships and people that may get into danger, and advise Search & Rescue services if a rescue is needed.
This is a superb app that can confirm identification by eye, telescope, and Radar.
I refer to it at home as a "geeky" pastime!

Stumbled upon this app by chance after seeing RMS Veritas on the Manchester Ship Canal and wondering what that ship was etc. Now completely hooked! As a scale railway modeller interested in dockside transfers, has opened a whole new world of reference photos!

Wondering about why so many ships in the Southern Hemisphere are located by satellite only - surely the Flat Earthers can’t be right?! 🤣

Would be great if I could figure out how to save/download photos from the ship galleries for future easy reference on my home computer. 🤔
