Repairs Needed - What to Do

While we were out off the coast of Puerto Rico our bilge pumps went out (yes all of them for one reason or another...not all the same reasons) and then our manual pump blew a leak. All the while it was raining cats and dogs and I could literally see the boat sinking lower. As we got into an anchorage we were desperate to find a repair facility. I actually used the search tool in our navigation app (Navionics) and was able to find a repair facility. I was pretty cool I could do it from right within the navigation software.
I had heard about this so thought I'd give it a shot. It worked really well so I thought I'd share the steps I used since this is a little known and very helpful capability.

Open Navionics app and scroll to your location (or click the little arrow in the bottom left which will move the chart to your current location):



Click the little magnifying glass icon (search icon) in the upper left.


then I clicked on Repairs


It told me how far away it was and I could even dial the number directly from the app. Thought that was pretty cool.
Anybody else tried this search feature in the Navionics app?

PR barely has a tide (8? inches) so the BEACH option is always possible.
