Right NOW is the best time to go boating with your loved ones and Dockmate will make your experience even more enjoyable!

Dockmate® is the world’s most advanced, affordable and safest wireless remote control system. With industry leading technology the Dockmate® system provides a stress free docking experience. You are able to leave the helm and get a closer look at your surroundings while still in complete control of the boat’s movement, resulting in total control during typical maneuvering in marinas and tight quarters.

“Dockmate® has given us more confidence in handling our boat in close quarters.” -Bob Arrington

Communication - Dockmate’s highly reliable TWO-WAY transmission system uses Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology that is commonly used today in Bluetooth, cell phones and Wi-Fi networks for secure and uninterrupted radio communication.

Customization - Dockmate’s DockControl software offers the ultimate in remote control customization and it can even provide improvements upon the existing propulsion controls. For example, the remote control settings can be programmed to "walk a boat" sideways towards a dock slip, even if the boat only has a bow thruster.

Proportional Engine Throttle - Dockmate® has relationships with several electronic engine control manufacturers and can offer fully proportional throttle with our Twist 3-axis joystick transmitters, and not just idle speed propulsion.

Proportional Thrusters - Dockmate® can also offer fully proportional throttle with systems from Side-Power and VETUS which also offer this tremendous benefit.

The Power of Sails

I suppose it isn’t merely a coincidence that I’ve made significant changes to the sailplans of the last three cruising boats I’ve owned. The first project was the biggest. My old Golden Hind 31, Sophie, had lots of charm and character, but her sloop rig was laughably small. ...read more

Chartering and the notion of going “off the beaten path” may sound self-contradictory. Charter companies tend to put bases where demand is high and they can turn a profit, so if you’re lucky enough to find an outfit and a destination that gets away from the typical—say yes. To ...read more

Cruising: Anchoring Skills

Watching charterers make a run for the last mooring in a cove is fun—and weird. I always wonder why so many would rather try to catch a mooring than drop the hook. Maybe charterers don’t trust their anchoring skills, but it’s harder to drive up and grab a buoy than most people ...read more
