Boating Trip planner replacement needed

I used to use an app called east coast trip planner, marketed by boattriplanner.com.

It was a fabulous little app that let you select noaa current stations along a route, then it would go get that data from noaa, and calculate how long it would take to transit your first route segment based on your starting time, cruising speed and helpful/hurtful currents, to the next station; it then calculated how long the NEXT segment would take, given the rate of current at the time you arrive there, and so on.

It would do that whole calculation for each hour of the day and present you with table, sorted by shortest overall trip time.

As I said up top, a fabulous app that saved HOURS of scut work

Unfortunately, the company closed up shop last year.

Does anyone know of another app or nav package that will do the same? Any genius app writers that can pop out a replacement?

Matt

Matt I need a replacement too! I can still use the app but it looks like it's days may be numbered if unsupported. What did you find? Thanks in advance!
