Fred that is the funniest thing ever. Can't wait for the kids to find that one. They love the gassing apps too!
Thanks,

I have the Navionics USA app, Boaters Reference, Nav Rules and Signal Info. I downloaded Ship's Log but have yet to try it. I have found the weather channel app and MapQuest to be handy also. I think I will look for that boat horn app. :-D

Hmmm...the current water levels is very interesting. I had some older guy at the marina tell me that there is some passage way to Lake Erie that had some sort of bump that held back water from Lake Erie but caused problems for boaters and ships, can't remember which. Anyhoo, he said they removed the bump and now Lake Erie water levels are rising where Lake Michigan is going down. It almost appears that this chart confirms that.
Thanks,
Steve

I added most of the apps mentioned. I have to say, the boat horn was pretty funny initially. The kids love it however...wow it got annoying fast! All in good fun :)
Thanks,
Steve
