  1. Hello Fellow Chappy Fans and Owners, It's been a very long time since last I posted on the Chaparral Forum and for good reason. I have been busy building a startup "RaftUp" and namesake app for recreational boaters could use to keep in touch and potentially add some safety. I am a big Chaparral Boating fan and ex-owner "I sold my boat for my startup", a big portion of what drove me to build this technology was inspired by my long experience with all things boating, boat ownership of a 2008 Chaparral 276 SSX and the Chaparral Community. I know that there are several wonderful navigation apps out there and that's great - RaftUp isn't another nav app, it's something different and I hope that you may be interested to check it out. We are just getting started and hope to learn and grow from this group. We have had some great press of late and I wanted to finally share the news with this community. http://tech.co/how-raftup-is-making-a-splash-this-summer-2016-05? Cheers!

  3. Good app to have on land, and on water. A lot of safety, weather, info at your fingertips. A float plan that you can email to up to 3 recipients ... a very underutilized safety feature. If you boat within cell service area you can even use it to call for help. Andy and Apple versions ... http://www.uscg.mil/mobile/
  4. A quick follow up on what was mentioned somewhere else on the forum ... a good marine weather forecast. I have mentioned the iPad marine forecast app called PocketGrib. It does focus on what's important to a mariner: wind speed, wind direction, atmospheric pressure, precipitation, as well as other popular weather parameters. I have used it to plan our weekly cruises during September and I am amazed how accurate and helpful the weather model was. All of our decisions where to go to dock or moor overnight were based on the model and there were no surprises. Here are some screen grabs: Overall Map View of the area, you can zoom in and out, and pinpoint the location of interest ... Once you pinpoint the location, you can see Meteogram with seven days worth of mariner weather data ... There is also a National Weather Service Marine Forecast with the concise marine weather info ... http://forecast.weather.gov/shmrn.php?mz=slz024 . Hope this helps.
  5. Just discovered AnchorAlertHD app for iPhone and iPad. Works better than my Garmin alarm ... more flexible in setting peremiter and offset when wind changes direction. Unlike fixed GPS, you can take it into a cabin to monitor the situation during the night. BTW, I think the app is free.
