Tracking feature

I've added a map showing our real time location to the blog.  I don't know how it will work out - we'll see as we start moving.   It's currently showing the old boat name "Double Wide".  We're trying to get that changed with the authorities.  The signal is being sent from our on board radio's AIS (Automatic Identification System) so that other boats (everyone, including cargo ships will be able to see us).  It sends a signal every few minutes.

So until the radio is changed, the name is probably going to show "Double Wide".  But rest assured it's actually us!  You can hit "More Info" and it will let you pan in/out on the map.


  1. That map is going to be a nice touch to track you. Amazing electronics. MOM

  2. I see you are near Seabrook. We spent Halloween night there in 1985 waiting for a storm to pass and to get a load of oysters to take to New Orleans. Just stuck in my memory. MOM

  3. hey Mom, that's a cool memory! yes, we've been to Seabrook Marina and several businesses just across the bridge from where we are here in Kemah.
