BoatU.S. launched a new Web site for recreational boaters affected by the Gulf oil spill that can help them stay informed, safeguard their boats and assist with recovery efforts.

The new site brings together a range of public and private resources and information for boaters, including how to protect your boat and the environment as well as boat cleanup tips. A live "observation map" allows boaters to e-mail updates of local conditions, which are then posted for public viewing.

The map also includes reports from TowBoatUS towing ports and BoatU.S. cooperating marinas along the Gulf Coast. It includes a map showing daily forecasted movement and locations of the oil spill.

Volunteer opportunities are also posted, as well as fishing restrictions and claims information for boat damage.
