The APMA website provides multiple networking opportunities to help you stay connected on your terms.  Link up through our social media sites or send a note to an old shipmate through our Membership Directory.  Don't worry, the directory was specially designed to keep your personal information private. You have control over who you want to reconnect with.

We provide an unlimited database so you can post stories, advice in the how-to section, and show what you’ve seen with photo and video submissions.  Tell a story, share a joke, or help the next generation with your yarn.

To keep you informed, we post advisories from the U.S. Coast Guard.  The Home Page has their news and key updates from the APMA staff.
