Users can also upload photos of their boat, creating a gallery for it. This could be your favourite shots, or key pieces of your inventory – cloud storage at its best.
Any boat owner can sign up, whether they’re a GJW Direct customer or not and use all the features on MyBoat, but GJW Direct customers can also access exclusive offers from some great brands.
“We have more partners in the pipeline”, explains Lev, “Some offers will change month by month, while others will be an ongoing discount, such as the 50% discount on magazines. Sign up and keep checking in to see what fantastic offers and discounts we will be offering next!”
Alongside the RNLI, GJW Direct are actively promoting the message of safety, and the Boating Equipment section of MyBoat is a real game-changer in this respect. You can store any equipment information here; from instrumentation, VHF radios, lifejackets and flares. You can even add custom items and personal effects. The key feature is the Inspection Due Date, which sends an automated alert when an item needs checking or servicing. This powerful tool could save you a huge amount of hassle and, even more importantly, will help you to keep your equipment in good working order, keeping you safe on your boat.
