SMARTPHONES and TABLETS: The CAPCA website has been optimized for viewing on a smartphone or small-screen mobile device. Here are a few things you should know about the mobile-device format:

  When you call up the website, under the CAPCA logo and light blue stripe, is a blue NAVIGATION bar. The small white square to the right of the word "Navigation" is the menu: tap it and you get the full menu, displayed vertically. It works the same way on the public and the member sides.

• Tap any menu item to go to that page. The page displays right under the member LOGIN/LOGOUT button. Set your mobile browser to remember passwords to make future log-ins easy.

Depending on the size of your mobile screen, when you clink on an index link to go to the article, you may have to scroll up or down a little to get to the start of the article. It's not possible to have the links hit at the exact start of an article on both large screens and small screens.

FORMS: when you fill out a form and click on the “I am not a robot” verification near the end of the form, using some browsers you may be asked to complete a second verification task. This is a security feature to prevent the robotic filling out of forms by a computer bot (i.e. roBot).

 The MEMBER LOG IN and MEMBER LOG OUT button in is in the blue area under the word “NAVIGATION.” There is also a LOG OUT button in the middle of most member pages. Both work. When you tap the blue MEMBER LOGOUT button, you get a second LOG OUT button in a turquoise blue box: tap that to complete the log out.

  Below the pages of information on the public side may be one or more panels of information, which are the items of information from the right side and the boxes at the bottom of the screen that you see on a larger screen.

  Below the pages of information on the member side only is a second log out button, and then one to three panels of information, which are the right column information items and the boxes at the bottom of the page that you see on a larger screen.

The RESOURCES section (left side column on larger screens) is at or near the bottom of all public and member pages. Scroll down.

• TWEETS: to read the CAPCA tweets, scroll to the bottom of any page and click on the small red Twitter circle under CAPCA’s address and phone number. Better yet, sign up to receive CAPCA tweets on your smart phone to stay informed.

GETTING AROUND: use the “back” arrow on your browser OR scroll up to the white menu square and make another selection from the menu.

About 15 minutes of practice on your particular smartphone is worth the time. There may be slight differences in display and operation depending on your smartphone model, the age of your phone, its operating system (Android, Apple iOS, Blackberry, Symbian, Windows OS, BADA, Palm OS, Web OS, Maemo, MeeGo or others) and the browser you use for mobile access to the website.

MEET ONE OF OUR CAPTAINS

CAPCAmeetAliciaTyrell

CAPTAIN ALICIA TYRELL is typical of many of our members. She spent 15 years as a biotech products developer before deciding to switch careers and become a full-time captain. She earned her Coast Guard captain's license (a 100-ton master's for inland and near-coastal waters) in 2014 and now operates water-taxis year-'round for the Baltimore Water Taxi Company. In the summer, she also works as a part-time captain for other maritime companies. 

"Before I got my license, I was working so I could afford to spend more time on the water," she says. "Now I get paid to do that." See Alicia on the Patapsco River or come meet her and other captains at one of our monthly meetings. CAPCA meetings are public and you're welcome to attend.
