"Almost every boat these days has an iPad in the cockpit, and for all coastal travelers the smartphone is becoming as vital as a pair of binoculars," says USHarbors President Jamie Bloomquist. "Life on the Coast takes advantage of these powerful devices to present photographs more clearly than we'd ever thought possible. And by incorporating web and email interactivity throughout, we're helping readers take the story even further."
