CONNECT! is now available!

By | 2017-06-09T10:07:24+00:00 August 20th, 2014|News|Comments Off on CONNECT! is now available!

After much last minute refining and testing, CONNECT! is now fully operational. So that means you can (and should in my opinion) go back to the home page and buy your very own CONNECT! We believe there is no product in the world that has the quality and capability of CONNECT! You can't afford to [...]

This Week at Boat Command…

By | 2017-06-09T10:07:24+00:00 July 30th, 2014|News|Comments Off on This Week at Boat Command…

This week at Boat Command we've spent hours moving box after box to prepare for our new offices. And for some reason, I seem to be the only one doing the heavy lifting. Maybe it's because I'm the youngest person at Boat Command by about a decade. Anyway, we're really looking forward to having offices [...]

Who’s your favorite boating companion?

By | 2017-06-09T10:07:24+00:00 July 22nd, 2014|News|Comments Off on Who’s your favorite boating companion?

Last night I watched an episode of the Dick Van Dyke Show. Rob Petrie (Dick Van Dyke) and his neighbor Jerry Helper decided that it would be a great idea to buy a boat. Their wives, Laura (Mary Tyler Moore) and Millie disagree and think owning a boat together will destroy Rob and Jerry's friendship. Naturally, [...]

CONNECT! Installation

By | 2017-06-09T10:07:24+00:00 July 18th, 2014|News|Comments Off on CONNECT! Installation

At Boat Command, I have a business position. I work on things like accounting and marketing, and try to let people who are much smarter than me handle the programming and electronics.  However, today I installed a CONNECT! on my uncle's sailboat. My uncle wants to monitor the house batteries, the starter battery, location, bilge pump activity, and [...]

CONNECT! in Detail: Controls

By | 2017-06-09T10:07:24+00:00 July 13th, 2014|News|Comments Off on CONNECT! in Detail: Controls

Controls is a term we like to use at Boat Command for turning on features on your boat remotely. For example, think of air conditioning. CONNECT!'s control functions allow you to turn on your boat's A/C a couple of hours before you get to your boat. This can be done from your home, your office, or on [...]

CONNECT! in Detail: GPS and Security

By | 2017-06-09T10:07:24+00:00 July 7th, 2014|News|Comments Off on CONNECT! in Detail: GPS and Security

Most things have changed since the time of the Egyptians. We don't ride camels to work and we don't bury people in "structures built by aliens". However, boat monitoring has seen no update. We still tie our boats up at the marina. We still travel to our boats to make sure they're in ship shape and where we [...]

CONNECT! in Detail: Bilge Pumps and High Water Alarm

By | 2017-06-09T10:07:24+00:00 July 2nd, 2014|News|Comments Off on CONNECT! in Detail: Bilge Pumps and High Water Alarm

What would your reaction be if you drove all the way to the marina just to find your boat like this? My reaction would probably qualify for America's Funniest Home Videos, and I can imagine your's would too! The chances of your boat sinking while at port are slim. Nonetheless, boaters always worry that this [...]

How inconvenient is it to come home just before your favorite TV show or sporting event, and find that your remote is out of battery? After blaming your significant other for the dead remote, you'll likely spend the next few minutes rummaging through drawers searching for those elusive double "A" batteries. This wasted time could cost [...]
