How do I sign up for “Route Weather Advisory Service”?
We will also need:
- Your boat name and type of boat
- Cruising and Max Speed
- Communication Details (Mobile, emai(s)l, boat email, SatPhone,—anything we need to stay in touch with you)
- How did you hear about our services?
- Billing details (Visa, Master Card, American Express, wire transfer or Check)
Then once we have received the completed forms (via email or fax):
We can set up a date/tme to discuss the weather pattern/forecast prior to departure. This date can be one day or 7 days before. During this time we can also determine the best weather window to depart and make a safe and comfortable transit. You may call in at no additional charge that same day to check on any updates. How much information you need/want is really up to you.
Shortly before departure:
We will email a forecast/outlook. Do you prefer to speak directly or how about texts? The choice is yours. Feel free to call us if you have any questions about the forecast or routing. Additional updates later that same day can be provided by either hard copy or verbally and are all part of the advisory day charge (no extra charge).
Once you are on your way:
We will monitor your progress along the way at no charge (you do have to call/text or email that information). Depending on the length of your trip, you may want to get additional weather forecast updates along the way. If you want daily updates we can arrange a time that works for both of us and we can use the latest available data. Since we monitor your progress we will contact you if there are changes in the forecast that will noticeably affect the wind/sea conditions or your safety.
Again. Please try to send us your position lat/long and weather every day so we can better monitor your progress.
We will charge your credit card at the end of your voyage, or once a month, depending on the length of your trip. We can send invoices and copies of paid invoices (via email). A valid credit card is needed to be kept on file and may be charged if payment is not made in a reasonable amount of time, unless prior arrangements have been made.
