GMDSS A User's Handbook

By Denise Bréhaut

GMDSS A user's handbook








The Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) provides a fast and efficient way of calling for assistance at sea, whatever the size of craft or its geographical position. Since it was first published, this book has helped explain the system for anyone using GMDSS and has been excellent pre-course reading for students.

What's on my Boat - New App for Yachtsmen

A new App for iPhone/iPad/iPod
Download here:

What’s On My Boat?™ is a great new iPhone app for iPhone, iPad and iPod that will help you get your boat organised and ready for the new season. What better way to spend the non-sailing months than to get down to the boat, crank up the heater and sort out what you've got on board?

What’s On My Boat?™ lets you make an inventory of everything on your boat, see  where it’s stowed, what it looks like and assign it to a list. See at a glance what needs replacing or servicing. Have the part numbers with you when you are standing in the chandler wondering what you wanted.

What’s On My Boat?™ puts your boat in your pocket so you can take it with you wherever you are.  Never again will you have to lift every bunk looking for the spare impeller or empty every locker to check what stores are on board. Or turn the boat upside down looking for that tool you stowed so carefully. Or try to remember what you took home at the end of last season. Never again will you buy spares only to find you’ve already got them!

What’s On My Boat?™  is simple to use.  You just enter an item.  And then, whenever you want, you can add:
•    a photo
•    a location
•    a category
•    a list
•    a note
The beauty of What’s On My Boat?™  is that you can use the categories, locations and lists in the App or you can create your own.  This is an App designed by a sailor for sailors. And once you’ve added stuff, you can browse by any combination of location, category and list. 
It’s what every boat owner dreams about – knowing exactly what's where and how to find it without turning the boat inside out.
What’s On My Boat?™  can be downloaded from Apple  iTunes
