One of the reason’s I started My Buzzards Bay was provided fellow boaters along the New England coast with the kind of information I was always struggling to find before I headed out.
Back in the my working days, I was with a very successful company called Aspect Development. Aspect’s “secret sauce” was it ability to organize fairly random data into a structure that enabled people to find information and compare it quickly. US Harbors does this for boaters.
Looking At Boothbay
We’re leaving for Maine on Vigilant this Friday so I thought I’d “test drive” US Harbors to so advanced study.
By the way, you can also select TIDES or WEATHER to get a local update.
It’s a Team Effort!
I contacted US Harbors a few months ago and they quickly made me a contributor. They’ve reposted a few of my stories which I appreciate.
One more thing I like about US Harbors is that they have some forum tendencies in that they encourage anyone to add photos or comments regarding each harbor. But unlike a typical boating forum, the valuable inside info isn’t lost as the thread ages; it goes into the harbor structure where everyone can find it when they’re doing their research.
Check out US Harbors before you head into the next unknown destination…
