App of the Month: Dockwa

Reserve slips and moorings with this handy app.

Reserving a mooring in your favorite port just got a little bit easier. Using the new Dockwa app, you can now do it with the touch of a finger. You can enter your credit card information and the specs of your boat in advance, then search for available slips and moorings in a desired location based on the size of your boat and the available amenities. When you find a spot you like, click the button to pay and reserve the spot. The app also provides helpful information about each marina including phone number, VHF channel and a map of the location.

The app is new and still expanding, so some regions are better represented than others. Namely, you'll find plenty of options in the Northeast and none (as of yet) on the West Coast.

Dockwa is available free of charge for iPhone and android through the App Store, Google Play or dockwa.com.
