The Miami Boat Show

After three busy days, the Miami Boat Show is over. It was an exceptional showing for ActiveCaptain and moved us into the second phase of our business - the place where other companies start using our data. MaxSea/Furuno's use of ActiveCaptain for their point-of-interest data is a big step for us. And it came out great.

We posted a newsletter to all of our captains this morning describing the news. Tomorrow an email goes out to every marina describing the new reach of our data and what is means to them.

At the show we met with a variety of other companies. There is a lot of interest for other companies and other products to integrate with our data. This will all help to fulfill the vision of an interactive cruising guidebook capable of assisting boaters with planning for their own adventures.

Today the top marine electronics blog gave a recap of the Miami Boat Show.  The first thing Ben mentioned was the use of ActiveCaptain data by MaxSea/Furuno. It's a big deal and these are really fun times as we watch our baby grow into adolescence.

Congratulations. Was hoping to run into you at the show, or at least see others with their AC hats. Instead, had several folks notice my hat and ask what AC was, so I gave them my take. Hope that at least a few are now new users.
