Publication launches free nautical website

Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors announced the national launch of USHarbors.com, a free website that delivers tide charts, weather data and forecasts, photography, and a steady stream of local stories and information through a social network of more than 1,100 harbors across 20 coastal state.

For each harbor and state, the USHarbors.com network delivers pinpoint onshore and marine weather forecasts; weather radar and buoy data; reliable, printable tide charts; a comprehensive coastal directory; and an ongoing stream of local stories, videos, photo galleries, and other information relevant to anyone with an interest in the coast.

By selecting a state and harbor, users can customize USHarbors.com to deliver weather and tide data for their favorite harbor. Stories and information can be filtered based on each user’s own interests.

“No matter how interconnected we get on a global level, all life is still local. If you live, work or play on the coast, what is happening in the natural environment around you is vitally important; every boater always has an eye on the weather,” John Hanson, Jr., founder and publisher of Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors, said in a statement. “But as social beings, what is happening in the local towns and businesses is equally important. This network of sites is kind of like the town dock where the weather, local knowledge and gossip are found all year long.”
