Bosun holds an AA degree in
data processing. He specialized in the field of large main frame
databases for 12 years and worked as a computer consultant on numerous projects, large and small for 10 more.
Bosun is a boater. He travels the waterways of Alaska, Mexico, and
many ports in between. As a young man, he gill
netted salmon with his own fish boat in the Pacific Northwest and
seined commercially on others during Alaskan Summers. Bosun learned
early on that good record keeping means a
safe boating experience and is essential to maintaining a well founded
boat. Having a comprehensive journal of your boating travels let's
you revisit exciting times whenever you wish, entertain friends, learn
from the past and prepare for the future. Bosun's first set of marine log books were created using off the
shelf products. That is when the changes
and improvements began.
log books are not static. They are continuously being refined and
constantly tested. User input is always welcome. Now they have
been reproduced using Visual Basic and
Microsoft Access ... a powerful relational database. Four years of
work have gone into creating a suite of Electronic Log Books that provide
full Vessel Management Services. They are fast and easy to
use, and make good seamanship an enjoyable process.
Bosun is a sailor who lives
part time on a pilot house sailing vessel named "firstlight".
Someone needs to test all this software code and it is Bosun who has
stepped up. Going from place to place, visiting new anchorages, fixing broken things, taking
pictures, creating log book entries, this is a cost that must be paid.
You might someday see Bosun in his
boat making Bosun's Buddy Electronic Log Books a better product.
Be sure to say hello.
Bosun started SelfTailing Software in order to offer this
Boating Product. The mission is to produce vessel management software
that answers the needs of power boat owners and sail boaters alike.
Whether a large yacht with sophisticated components and huge inventories
or a smaller boat with simple logbook needs, you will find a fast and
efficient way to document your life afloat.
Bosun's Buddy Electronic Log Books include a computer with an OS of
Windows XP or later. You
need a monitor with a minimal resolution of 1024 x 768, a hard
drive with 2 G available space, a CD or DVD drive and preferably a digital camera.
