    the other day i watching treasure quest, several times they talked about AIS tracking, I went on line and found the site they were talking about, it tracks boats in the ocean. I am a deadliest catch fan and found some of the boats, it is a cool site, note it can be a little laggy. /www.marinetraffic.com/ais/

    I tried it and I get a Page not valid screen. Then I removed one of the forward slash marks at the begining. Now it works.

    Thanks for posting this. I watch the same shows. This will be really neat.

    I spent about 3 hours last night playing on this site. As ncfowler said, it is a little slow but this thing is really neat. Once you learn how to use it, it makes you wish you had remembered the names of boats.

    Again - thanks for posting this.
