While I understand what you mean, it wasn't exactly fortunate. As anchorage boats they allow you free dinghy dock, $1 showers etc. but you must leave your contact details in case they need to get in touch with you.

So more good management than fortunate

The buzz word app and phone numbers being mentioned constantly it’s strange the there’s far less mentioned about seamanship. After all this is a issue of seamanship. But the go-to solutions appear to be to get an app or two.
At least dock talk isn’t dominating the exchange.

Why not both? Even with excellent seamanship, ship happens.

menzies,
Of course but depending on electronic devices “primarily” seems a mistake as soon it would seem there will be no “both”. Just devices like i-phones and tablets. HaHa I’m pecking away at this on my i-pad ........

I have an iPad app that will email me if my anchor alarm goes off. It is called "Anchor!"
I can't find it on Android apps.
Just set your email for alert sounds.

That's well known but no reason to start posting owner's information on a forum. The OP had the information and the issue under control.

First, most people will eventually have an anchor drift, even those with great seamanship. We haven't but we know it can and will happen. Also, I can control my boat but not others and having an alarm alerts me if another boat moves into me and disrupts me plus cameras give me a view of anything going on and we do check cameras regularly. Now one can add to the cameras by setting a system to notify of anything within a certain field or distance.

I donít. However, I donít anchor out and leave the boat very often. If Iím going ashore, I usually am at a marina. If I am anchoring out, I am usually in sight of the boat am not away for very long. Also, if there was going to be much wind/weather, I wouldnít be off the boat.

Again, that may be a regional difference and how we use the boat.

Also it is simple a matter of money. I canít afford a constant networked system that can be monitored remotely. It would be nice, and if I was a live-aboard I might do it.

The key word being ďrelativelyĒ. For me, that translates into relatively expensive.

I agree with Menzies. Of course seamanship trumps all, but bad things do happen. Mistakes are made. I would love to have a continuously connected wifi system on the boat where I could monitor all kinds of things. Not as an excuse to be lazy in my seamanship, but as a backup and convenience.

Dave,
I just don't see what all the excitement is about.
What's exciting about an anchor alarm?
I have one by the way but needing to access that info away from the boat is silly.
And if there was a need you shouldn't leave the boat.

Glad it worked out well and you took the right steps to ensure it did.

Accessing information about my boat drifting seems important either way....but AWAY from the boat seems WAYYYYYYY more important than when I am on it.

When aboard, figuring out I am dragging is usually a lot easier and my response time to correct is quicker.

I wouldnít say ďexcitementĒ but rather it would satisfy my curiosity. I frankly donít worry too much about the boat. It is in a pretty secure location. If it burns, it burns. If stuff is stolen, Iíll replace it. If it sinks, well, that is what insurance is for. I want to do all that is reasonable to prevent bad things from happening, but 24/7 monitoring isnít, for me, reasonable.

However, I think it would be cool to be able to monitor the boat remotely. The novelty still hasnít worn off on my solar and Iíd be curious to see how long it takes each day to get the battery back up to fully charged with the refrigeration running for example. I can find out once on Iím the boat, but the boat is 30 minutes away and Iím busy working. I only can get out there on the weekend and this month Iím going to be so busy that even that wonít happen.

So I donít ďneedĒ that information, but it would be fun to have.

“Cool” is the word. Do we really need to be cool? No.
And I think that’s what it’s all about.
I was cool at 16 w my blue suede shoes. Now not so much.

Cool is also when you stroll down the dingy dock, buzz out to your boat and reanchor it before the sweat forms on the astern boat's captains brow.

Before it becomes an issue and the police track you down in town and race you back to your boat.

Cool, smooth, intelligent and Seaman like in the sense you get better and better (safer and safer) with time.

Far from the best holding there that I've found between Halifax, NS and SW Florida. As you noted though, a very organized and accommodating port.
