Trialing Deckhand® Pro in the Washington Coast Dungeness Crab Fishery:

We're Glad You're On Board! 

Holiday greetings! 

You're receiving his email because WDFW passed along your contact information to me based on your expressed interest in testing the electronic logbook Deckhand® Pro in the upcoming Dungeness crab fishery. We're ecstatic to have the opportunity to work with crab fishermen on the Washington coast! 

First, a little background: we are a fisherman-founded company and I'm a commercial fisherman myself. We roll out of bed every day to focus on building technology that helps fishermen and their businesses cope and succeed in the face of ever-increasing requirements for electronic reporting. Our logbook, Deckhand Pro, is designed to work the way fishermen work and serve as a useful tool in the wheelhouse.

Robert Morgan at WDFW has graciously opened the door for us as a fisherman-focused logbook provider to work directly with crabbers who are interested in testing Deckhand Pro this season for sending electronic reports. 

Here's what you need to know so far: 
  • Getting the go-ahead for this project is only a recent development, so we're fast-tracking it. 
  • We're already underway building your logbook, customized for the Dungness crab fishery. We should have it available by mid-January. 
  • Deckhand Pro runs on the WiFi+Cellular Apple iPad. If you have one, great. We can set you up on that device. If not, we have a few "loaner" devices we can provide. 
  • I will make a trip out to a central location or two that works for as many people as possible to give you your devices and offer a bit of onboarding and training. I know this could be difficult, especially since you southern folks will likely already be fishing. But we'll have to do our best. This will occur sometime mid to late January. 
  • I'll be back in touch early-January to firm up more details. 
That's it for now. Please call me at any time on my cell - 360-739-8060 or email me at any time. I'd love to get to know you and learn about your operation. I am of course happy to provide answers to any questions you may have, as well.

Happy holidays to you and yours. I'll be in touch again after the first of the year. 

Best regards,
