Website releases safe-boating app

Florida By Water is releasing its newest iPhone application, Vessel Safety Check, in recognition of National Safe Boating Week.

This app uses the federal boating requirements for recreational boaters, as well as other vessel examiner documentation, to ensure that recreational boaters have the equipment necessary to be safe on the water.

The app identifies the required equipment for recreational boats based on criteria specific to a user's vessel, including boat size, inland or coastal waters and inboard or outboard engine. Once the app has compiled a list of requirements the boater will receive a list of optional safety items and an explanation of them.

The list can then be e-mailed or saved for future reference. Other features worth noting are the West Marine locator, West Marine-recommended items and a vessel examiner locator.

The app is on sale in the iTunes App Store for 99 cents.
