How does Float Plan Registry Help Automate Boater Safety?
Automatic Distribution of Float Plans -
A key time saving feature of filing your float plan with Float Plan Registry
is its automatic distribution to your contacts. Unlike paper oriented float plans
that you must manually distribute to your trusted contacts, our float plans
are automatically emailed to your contacts.
Automatic Check-in Reminders -
We all have a lot going on these days! It's easy to forget to contact the
people you filed your float plan with and let them know you have returned home safely. No
worries. With Float Plan Registry, you'll receive a reminder notification
just after your scheduled check-in. Simply click the check-in button on your
check-in reminder and you're done. Your float plan is automatically updated and
check-in status instantly visible to all your contacts.
Automatic Overdue Notices -
The most important reason for filing a float plan is so that others may alert
emergency resources in the event that your plan hasn't worked out so well. Your
float plan information is invaluable to emergency responders. Proper
information will help responders locate you as quickly as possible and lend
assistance. Time is crucial!
Float Plan Registry can automatically notify your float plan
contacts when you are overdue.
Automatic Inclusion of Vessel information in Float Plans -
With a traditional paper based float plan, you must enter your vessel information
each time you file a float plan. Float Plan Registry stores your vessel
information in your secure profile and automatically includes it in any
float plan you create.
Automatic Inclusion of Crew information in Float Plans -
Most often, we travel with the same crew; our friends or family members. Float
Plan Registry makes it easy to create a default crew list. Your default
crew is automatically included in new float plans. While building the plan,
you can simply accept the default crew or select the crew configuration you
plan to travel with.
Automatic Inclusion of Contact information in Float Plans -
Float Plan Registry also maintains a list of your contacts - people
you trust with your float plan information. You can setup a default
group of contacts in your secure profile that are automatically included in your new
float plans. While building your float plan, you can simply accept this
default group of contacts, or select others defined in your profile.
