Boat Sentry was designed by a cruising boater who wanted more options and visuals than was available from the multi-function display screen, the most expensive electronics or the hard to use and limited in scope mobile apps currently available.
Boat Sentry will give you complete control over how you anchor in any situation with any number of anchors. The controls are extremely simple and assistive to give you the most peace of mind while anchoring in and around reefs, shallows, other boats and obstacles.
The Boat Sentry development team wants your feedback to help improve the features that enhance your peace of mind and security while anchoring. So, we have a feedback form that goes directly to the developers included in the Boat Sentry App.

Notice: As Boat Sentry uses your GPS to monitor your location, which can drastically decrease battery life, it is suggested to always be connected to an external source so the battery does not die when you need it most!
Please be aware that it is never suggested to use Boat Sentry as your sole source for anchoring alerts!
What's New in Version 1.0.1

This has much promise but too many bugs for ios 8.4 be considered worthy for a function as important as anchoring watching
Very poor directions and never did figure it out
Don't waste your time
This app seems to use cellular or internal GPS and doesn't have an interface for an accurate external GPS. IT MOSLTY SHOWED OUR BOAT BEING ON THE NEAREST ROAD...skip this one
