Deckhand Beta Program

Being a Beta Crewmember means:

  • You get advance copies of products and features before release to the public;
  • You get priority attention from our support crew;
  • You get to contribute ideas or changes to our product that will help us make the product better for you and others; 
  • You get free subscriptions to Deckhand In-App Purchases while testing, and a free lifetime subscription to the logbook of your choice after being on the Beta Crew in good standing for 6 months!* Offer available for a limited time! 

Deckhand runs on Apple iPad (WiFi+Cellular) and almost any recent model is fully supported. 

If you already have an Apple iPad…
