Hello Boaters, Thanks to J.T.’s comments, we have added a new dock configuration including Mooring Buoys. In addition, we have made some extensive “behind the scenes” changes. So, please, refresh your browser in the menu page, and again at the simulator page, and then test it out for us and send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks to Captain […]

Thanks to your feedback, we have restored a feature that previously existed in earlier versions. You can once again change the wind & water direction and amount in either the startup menu or on the fly in the simulator. When you are in the simulator, click on a small circles around the wind and water […]
Thanks for all your feedback on our new look. Unfortunately, the update did not work across all browsers. We think we fixed the problem. So refresh your page at the menu screen and again at the simulator screen and let us know if the updates work for you. Thanks for you patience!
