NEWPORT, RI. – October 11, 2016 – Dockwa has joined the effort to help the boating community in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew by contributing real-time reporting on affected marinas, bridges, rivers and waterways, right on their website.
Hundreds of marinas were affected by the storm, from destroyed boats and docks to total losses. Most of the marinas affected were in the Carolinas, on the Intracoastal Waterway, with the worst of the damage coming in South Carolina and Northeastern Florida.
"Dockwa is built by boaters, for boaters, so we jumped at the chance to do our small part to help marinas and cruisers affected by Hurricane Matthew," said Dockwa CEO Mike Melillo.
"As a tech startup, we were able to develop this new tool on the fly, and we felt uniquely positioned to create some order out of the chaos. We hope having one source of up-to-date information provides some relief to boaters and marinas alike."
Much of the credit is due to our partnership with ActiveCaptain, who has contributed to this report, and also promoted it in the boating community.
