What Our Customers Are Saying...

It sure has made life aboard so much less stressful.

Jim Burgoyne, Ishigaki, Japan

The AISWatchMate is the most useful equipment I have on the boat – when I got to the Panama Canal I had a record number of 180 ships showing up!

I had experience with the AISWatchMate on a trip south to Mexico and was very impressed with how easy it was to use. It quickly became one of the few electronic devices on board that was in constant use. A comforting change from most electronics.

I love the product. It will be on my boat when my wife and I leave on our next circumnavigation. Did an 8 year circumnavigation from 1997-2005 and this will make our next one a lot easier.

I've done 500 miles of the West African coast with the benefit of the WatchMate. It's f***in great!!!

Tony Beks, "Ragin Cajun", enroute South Africa to Brazil

It's awesome. Works beautifully. I love love love my WatchMate. As I frequently passage solo I feel a lot safer out there. Thanks so much for your help.

BTW: I have checked the AIS system on a 112' mega yacht whose captain thought his chartplotter was the best system until he saw my WatchMate. With the WatchMate you get instant notification of every target's CPA and TCPA which you do not get with a chartplotter until you click on the target.

Thank you for taking the time to write. Obviously there's never a perfect answer, but clearly the WatchMate is a huge step in that direction.

All the best, and thanks for developing a product that will enhance my safety a thousand times over when I finally head out!

The WatchMate is definitely a slick device. It's great to be able to track nearshore Southbound ships and even Northbound ships in the Gulf Stream that are 20 miles out. Compared to radar info, especially in a bouncing sea, the WatchMate data is rock solid.

Thomas Leonard, Florida

We think about you often – especially when we use our WatchMate. What a great product! You will be pleased to know that it has been working out well for us. Last summer while making a night crossing from Tunisia to Sicily, it really came in handy. The major shipping lanes from the Suez Canal to Gibraltar run right through those waters and it is teeming with commercial ships. At one point we were tracking about 30 large ships (some oil tankers were over 900 feet long!), all within a 12-mile radius from us. Actually, there were many more ships in the area, but we only concentrated on those within a 12-mile radius. Frankly, we would have been in a panic if not for our WatchMate. As it was, we were able to slow down, speed up, and/or change course and know within seconds if we were out of danger. It was also comforting to know that we could hail a particular ship by name, should the need arise. Fortunately, it didn’t come to that, because we were able to plan and execute our maneuvers with confidence, thanks to our WatchMate. We have shown our WatchMate system to several other cruisers, and a fellow who occasionally has to singlehand his 50-foot catamaran e-mailed us to say that he subsequently bought one after seeing ours. Hopefully, a few others did, too, even if they didn’t mention it to us. And if they didn’t, it’s their loss, because we wouldn’t be without our WatchMate in the Med. There are simply too many large ships sailing these waters.
