Some are worried about mud weight / anchor mooring due to drift from tide and wind.
This app for android - just found it - looks as if it could be useful and it is FREE.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.fs.android.anchorwatchfree&hl=en_GB

It offers some sort of map system but not researched this as yet.

Let me know how you find it and if there is any others  - free - worth looking at.

BTW the above has a short video showing how to use it - nice touch. !

After messing with the above app, I have found this one to be better.
It even shows a map of your position and the PRO version shows a "breadcrumb" of boat movement too.

At £2.99 not a lot to lose!
