Waternet, the public utility responsible for keeping the sewer and canals clean, developed this boat app, together with Tam Tam Mobile. The app has a rich list of functionalities; it shows in realtime where the canals are busy and where not, where you can stop for food and fuel, your speed and direction (with a compass), and the weather forecast. The app also keeps a logbook of your routes, distances, fuel usage, etc. See all functionalities here. The only thing that bugs us a little is that a boat permit in Amsterdam is rather expensive – and the general Waternet taxes quite high, for that matter – which gives the impression that Waternet is about the only (semi-) governmental organization that is throwing with money – and let’s us pay for it. Having said that, a fun toy it is.
