@Dicovery 15797 I bet after 20+ years in SW business you've sen more than enough of technology, maybe this is why you fled to boats! Indeed, the endeavour
is more that substantial and the 1st version went live at end-2019. I would really appreciate you talking a look at www.TheBoatApp.com
and passing along your comments. The target market? Is recreational boating
. This includes charterers, skippers, captains, marina staff, marine
professionals (technicians/mechanics), etc. If you see the functionalities, there is a bit of value added for all of them (e.g. task assignment to technicians, document sharing, alerts, etc). For the full details, have a look at our Tutorials page
We are now initiating Phase-2 (DB restructuring, Push notifications, Checklists on mobile apps, etc), planning Phase-3 for the 2nd half of the year (NMEA/Signal-K sensors integration) and already have a 3 years development roadmap ahead.
You mentioned customization
, where the "...users can pick and choose the data they want to collect, track, and analyze...". We already have a dashboard and it is in our roadmap to be able to provide customization for the users to be able to select needed info.
Regarding data input depth (i.e. details entered)
it is up to the user to fulfill all fields (cost, expiration, alert, etc) or just a couple of them (e.g. the part name and number only).
Regarding Radio Log,
it is already included in the logbook as an individual category of log-entries. As is Weather Logs
To build a "Mouse Trap
"?! Absolutely not! Both myself and the whole team (over a dozen of professionals) have respect for the users. The deal is transparent with the user getting a free service
and ability to export his data
at any point (CSV, Excel, PDF). We target to be able in a few years to pride ourselves for an open and interconnected platform for all fellow sailors and the recreational marine industry (our Open-API
is under development and expected during Q2). Especially with support and feedback from experienced and knowledgable fellows of CF, like yourself, we shall get there!
