USCG launches app

Jun 4, 2015 by Guest Writer

The U.S. Coast Guard has launched a boating safety app that incorporates several safe boating practices in one place. Users can use the app to file a float plan and then e-mail it to friends and family, report a navigation hazard, request a safety check, and get state-by-state boating information.

The app also includes rules of the road, NOAA weather updates, and emergency assistance.
