Most information on a float plan is reusable. In other words, if you filed a float
plan for your last trip, why not reuse the applicable information for this trip?
Your vessel information, your
crew member information, even the contacts you'd share a float plan
with are very often the same. Float Plan Registry packages all this
reusable information into your secure profile and automatically includes it in
your float plans. You never enter the same information twice!
- Your Vessel -
You can profile as many boats as you
wish, and even specify one as your default. Your boat profile includes
information such as name, color, make, model and year, registration
information, engine and fuel information, safety equipment, etc. You can even
upload an image of your boat that is automaticlly included in all your published
float plans as well.
- Your Crew -
Very often we boat with the same
members of our family or friends - your crew. Each member of your crew, including
the captain, is entered into your crew list. Name, date of birth, contact
information, address, etc. are all part of a crew member profile. You can
create as many crew members are you wish, and even designate default
crew members - the crew you normally have aboard.
- Your Contacts -
These are people you trust to
act on your behalf in an emergency. The people you want to receive your
Float Plan when it is published. You profile each person you'll send
your float plans to. Name, address, contact information and the
like are part of a contact's profile. Here again you can specify
default contacts which are automatically included in new float
plans you build.
