Nantucket Boat Basin

We were not pleased with this experience. By far the most we have spent for a berth at a marina and felt that it was a push you in and push you out machine. We arrived and were made to hold in the channel for over 45 minutes while staff handled other boats only to learn when we arrived that the marina was understaffed. I ended up loosing my bow thruster for the docking procedure due to using it so long in the wind in the channel. Then when we asked to delay our departure by an hour or two were made to feel like this was a major ask. I was told that they had a reservation for our berth. We left to take a mooring right in front of the dock that we had and saw that no one ever used it when we left. We left with a very bad taste in our mouth.

So far so good

This app has made research for available moorings and transient slips a reasonable task as a cruiser. Gone are the hours of pouring over guides books and internet searches. Only to miss some great options when looking for the latest info on a destination or the places in between should foul weather or some other mishap befall a trip. Keep in mind this is NOT an end all to good research via other means it does however simplify the research that needs to be addressed. One thing I see so far that would make this app really great is including anchorage’s to the app with a rating system on its location, bottom features and anchor holding characteristics.

In general this is a must have app for cruising. It greatly simplifies finding docks and moorings and is a great source of information and reviews.

Unfortunately, some of the best map features repeatable crash my iPhone 6 running IOS 12.4 Applying map filters and zooming in are impossible. Zooming in general seems to be unstable. Clicking on the map in the marina view sends me to my own location rather than the marinas location though clicking on the GPS coordinates below the map works until it crashes while trying to zoom in, in satellite view.

All in all though, this is a very useful app that keeps getting better and better.

A couple of features I would like to see,
-An easy way to write a review of the marina from the app.
-Maps of the mooring fields and docks when available rather that having to go to the marina website.
-Anchoring information. Yes, this is an app primarily for booking marina space which is what pays but this app has the potential to be the ubiquitous app for all cruising services replacing the former Active Captain site.
