Harbour Explorer

Denton Froese on Aug 19

One of the most common questions you hear on the harbour walk (besides "spare any change?") is "which country is that ship from?". This app would show publicly available information about ships docked in the harbour, such as the eye-catching yachts or the massive cargo freighters. Some information about the ships in the navy base could also be provided, as well as a tide table. People would also be able to add extra information about their own crafts, if they wish - such as which fishing boats would be willing to chaffeur people to McNabs Island!
