In late 2015 my wife and I were returning home from a weekend out on our little sailing catamaran when a call came over the radio. It was another sailing boat calling rescue services saying their motor had failed and they were off the coast trying to find a way back to safety. They were two adults with an infant aboard. Rescue services returned their call but could not raise a response.
We heard nothing more from the vessel and its skipper.
This one event had a profound impact on our lives and set us on a path to create a communication, monitoring and emergency notification system that can help improve safety for everyone on the water.
Your Boating Buddy is the result.

With your help we know we can make maritime safety even better.
