Our Fleet Tracker is currently going strong with 750 boats registered (Sep-19) and more joining every week. To include your boat in the Fleet Tracker please ensure your MMSI is registered with www.marinetraffic.com.

Take a look at where the current registered boats are: https://oceancruisingclub.org/Fleet-Map

How it works.
There are three alternative methods to enable position reporting for your vessel. These are listed online here and below:

1. By AIS transponder. The vessel's transponder should be active and transmitting her signal. As soon as one of Marine Traffic’s antennas collects her signal, a record of the Vessel will be automatically created in their database.

2. By using the OnCourse: Android or iOS self-reporting app. Download the App and follow the instructions to open Marinetraffic.com account. The App sits on your smartphone and uses the phone's GPS to post the position. It will work anywhere there is a 3G or 4G Mobile data signal and your phone is switched on.

3. By Emails. This too requires a Marinetraffic.com account and this needs to be associated with your boat's MMSI number. Positions can then be sent in from anywhere where you have access to email provided you are using the email account that you used to register your Marrinetraffic.com account.

How to email a position report to the OCC Map:

1. Open an marinetraffic.com account and then register you boat and MMSI. Ideally upload a photo too.

3. Email your boat’s position to report@marinetraffic.com but you MUST use the following format:

MMSI=235027206
LAT=56.21915
LON=-5.548925
SPEED=0.1
COURSE=236
TIMESTAMP=2015-06-15 08:31

Latitude and Longitude should be in decimal degrees. Negative values for South or West coordinates. Speed in knots. Timestamp in UTC

You can find more details online here: https://help.marinetraffic.com/hc/en-us/sections/200726627-Report-Your-Own-Position

Hi Gavin,
I've tested the page and it is working correctly so you must have a localised problem.  I suspect your security settings are blocking the pop-up.  Have a play with the settings and see if you can fix this.  Perhaps try on a different device with different settings?
Regards,
Rachelle

Your browser is probably set to block third party websites. If you enable this the the iFrame view of the filtered MarineTraffic website will work.
