Dozier's Waterway Guide offers Sandy-damage app

Boaters along the New Jersey coast, Long Island and Hudson River have a new free smartphone app that gives them updated map-based information on marinas, boating facilities, waterways and inlets along the heavily trafficked boating corridor.

Available for iPhone, iPod and Android phones, the free Sandy Boater's Guide app is offered by Dozier's Waterway Guide, with support from BoatUS, TowBoatUS, the Association of Marina Industries, the Monmouth University Urban Coast Institute and the Atlantic City Boat Show.

"Everyone wants to help boaters and boating facilities get back to a successful season after so much devastation," Waterway Guide news editor Mike Ahart said in a statement. "The rebuilding and cleanup efforts have been astounding, and we hope this app helps inform the boating public that services are open for business throughout Sandy-affected areas."

Waterway Guide editors continually update information from boating business and facility managers via the Waterway Guide's Sandy Resource Page and through email.

The app can be found by clicking here as well as at iTunes and Google Play.
