I like the idea of route sharing via Active Captain, as promised here:
But today I got this e-mail, which is going around amongst a group of very experienced cruisers:
"I read this with some amazement -- certainly in AC's technological expertise to be able to do this, but in absolute shock that a boat owner/skipper navigating a boat through unfamiliar waters would use somebody else's waypoints. Electronic navigation has its benefits, but in making the process of getting from point A to B so easy, aren't we actually making boating LESS safe. I can only imagine the lawsuits that are likely to result. Does anyone agree with me on this?"
