Sea Logs Electronic Logbooks For Boats. Fleet Efficiency

If you tied up your crew, made them walk the plank, and forced them to each pick one word to describe their current logbooks...a few words comes to mind "paper" "pen" "diary" "ummm...." 

If you had tied up myself (and don't try this at home kids!) but if you asked me to describe my current logbook in one word, you would hear me yell "EFFICIENCY" "EFFICIENCY" "EFFICIENCY!" and so much so, that those little veins on the side of neck would start to show!  

We fully understand that whatever your role might be in a marine business, being efficient at what you do is of the utmost importance to your success. Whether you’re the owner of the business, the captain of the ship, or a seasoned deckhand, we developed our electronic logbooks with you in mind.

skipper sealogs

Owning a boat doesn't generally happen by accident. You need a plan, finance and someone to manage and operate the vessel on regular bases. There is a lot to think about from ensuring the safety checks are being completed, the equipment is in service and the vessel is operated properly and kept in mint condition. Careful consideration needs to be taken when hiring a new Skipper. Settling for any old Skipper will likely end up wasting your time and costing you money!   

Identify early on who is a good fit and who is not, as when it comes to being a Skipper you only want to have the best! Check out our latest blog for our top tips that will save you time and extra expense!

st john sealogs

Crew Training - who is responsible? 

Overall the Master/Skipper is responsible for: 

  • the safe operation of the ship on a voyage, the safety and wellbeing of all passengers and crew, and the safety of cargo carried
  • has final authority (while in command) to control the ship and maintain the discipline of all people onboard
  •  is responsible for compliance with all relevant requirements of the MTA, regulations and maritime rules.

It's important for the safety of everyone onboard, that regular, thorough Crew Training is conducted on all vessels, and done right! SeaLogs now has the ability for you to customise your training list to suit your vessel and operation.
