Thanks Simon. There seems to be something preventing my installing OnCourse on my Blackberry Passport. I will try again!! Mobile reporting seems like a good idea, we 're nearly always in cellphone range in SW Iberia.

I agree, I have failed to get an MMSI no or download OnCourse the mAIS app.
It 's incomprehensible to a pensioner!!

I update my yachts position automatically via Boat Beacon App and my understanding is that the locations for all AIS and App based locations go into a global database of boat positions. I have signed up for being added to the OCC map but not sure if you will pick up my position by this method although I should appear on Marinetraffic.

Let me know and if not will go to plan B.

Cheers

Just a brief reminder to those updating their boats position by email:

1. If you are struggling to decimalise your lat long then if you go to the fleet map and hover your mouse where your boat should be then the lat long will be displayed on the screen in the correct format.
2. Don 't forget the important -ve in front of the Latitude to depict southern hemisphere and, similarly, -ve in front of the Longtitude to depict the western hemisphere.
3. email your message to report@marinetraffic.com
4. The email must be sent from the email account registered with Marinetraffic.com or else the position will not update.
5. It is easy to change your registered email address on the Marinetraffic website if you want to send from your satellite of SSB email account.

An example of a successful position post is pasted below. The email should be addressed to report@marinetraffic.com. The subject should be left blank and the body text should read:

MMSI=235027206
LAT=66.07319
LON=-023.12522
SPEED=0.0
COURSE=110
TIMESTAMP=2016-07-04 17:30

Hope this helps.

Simon

Daragh,
Sorry I am not quite clear. Do you want this boat displayed on the fleet map?

I am pleased to report that the OCC Fleet Map is now fixed and appear to be stable.

We have had a flurry of new registrations as people get their boats in the water for the northern summer so please take a look and let me know of any problems.

Please encourage other boats to register so that the map gives a comprehensive overview of our OCC Fleet.

Just to let everyone there is a currently a problem with the OCC Fleet Map. It appears Marinetraffic.com have upgraded their software with the inevitable consequences! We are waiting for a response from them. Sorry about this.

The website is now up and running with all links working. If you are having trouble seeing the Fleet Map, it may be a function of the browser you are using. Firefox loads it fine. Chrome is causing problems.

There’s a new cookie disabler in Chrome. You need to enable cookies from Marine Traffic. Look inside the URL box to the right of the URL. Click on the half eaten cookie icon there and click on 'cookie blocking '. If you see Marine Traffic, click on 'Allow '. Then type in oceancruisingclub.org and click 'Allow '. Then click 'Done '. That should do it.

If you are having problems in other browsers, please report them to me. Thanks.

Odette,
Oh now I understand. There is a general problem with the website following the demise of the web server last week. The internal links have all been messed up and Andrew is working hard to restore it. The link that is working is if you log onto the website and open the Cruising information tab. At the bottom of that menu there is a working link to the OCC Fleet Map.

Alternatively try this link http://www.https://occwebsite.azurewebsites.net/Flying-Fish-Archive?id=id=2698&Itemid=410

I hope they get the website fixed soon!

Hello Simon,

Many thanks for the prompt response.

I regret to advise that as of 5:19pm Barcelona time, when one clicks on the link cited on the 1st post of this thread, namely:

http://www.oceancruisingclub.org/index.php/cruising-information/occ-fleet

... the result is:
Not Found

The requested URL /index.php/cruising-information/occ-fleet was not found on this server.

Apache/2.4.6 (CentOS) OpenSSL/1.0.1e-fips mod_fcgid/2.3.9 PHP/5.4.16 Server at www.oceancruisingclub.org Port 80

Again, thanks for all the hard work.

Cheerio

Odette,
It 's working again and you are showing up just south of Barcelona. It does periodically go off line which I assume is maintenance related.

Anne,
I hadn 't previously received your Fleet Map registration but I am pleased to say you are now the first boat to register (and show up) from Nelson, New Zealand.

Hi Simon
I have just completed the form. I thought we had previously registered for this. We are in NZ, but not showing so far!

Sofia

Let me know if AIS transponder is enough or whether I need the App
