What's New in Version 1.0.1
Updated Internet links.
Supposed to be able to download Boating Safety Checklist. I can't even get the app to download. All I can get is an inactive list of sites I can't get to. I thought this was a downloadable app.
Does what it says, but pretty lame
This app does provide the required safety equipment list for your boat (as promised) but it's little more than a fancy notebook. It has not been updated for iOS 7 and the navigation in the app leaves a lot to be desired. There is a list of links in the app, but my state's was not the right one (it was a broken link).
