Have you ever broken a prop on a boat? I can't tell you how many times I have. Right in my own back yard.

So... that's why I built this site.

I'd like it to become a user contributed hazard database.
Potholes in the roads, Underwater obstructions you just can't see from your boat... You get the idea. Anything!
Now, I know that NOAA provides alot of very good data in their charts, but, they don't cover everything. I hope we can compensate for that here.

Please use this site to add hazards relevant to each tab (context).
To add or edit a hazard you created, click on the map and then expand the hazard section under the map, editing the fields to provide relevant data.
To refresh the known hazards at a given zoom level, use the link under the map.

We only show the first 64 hazards we find at a given zoom level, if you don't see one you're after, try zooming in a bit.

Use the forum tab or the chat link from the listing to discuss a particular item with others.
