My­boat web­site to as­sist sailors with yacht main­te­nance

Yachting Monthly - - NEWS -

The site will send out an alert when ser­vic­ing or other main­te­nance needs to be car­ried out

Sailors are be­ing in­vited to sign up to the free My­boat web­site to ac­ti­vate re­minders about main­te­nance.

The site is run by GJW Di­rect, the boat in­sur­ance com­pany, and to date has only been avail­able to mo­tor cruiser own­ers but has now been ex­tended to in­clude all boat own­ers.

Users can up­load their boat de­tails, in­clud­ing the dates of main­te­nance, such as an en­gine ser­vice, and re­minders will then be sent via email or SMS mes­sage. It also has a kit list func­tion, which can be used to store de­tails of the equip­ment on board, when it was bought and when it needs re­plac­ing.

GJW Di­rect said the ser­vice is uni­ver­sally avail­able, although those who have in­sur­ance with the firm will be able to ac­cess ex­clu­sive of­fers.

It said that de­tails en­tered onto the My­boat web­site – my­boat.gjwdi­rect. com – are pass­word pro­tected and can only be ac­cessed by the user.
