Longtime MaxSea user Dimitri Rogoff is a fisherman and the president of the Normandy Scallop Committee in France. Here, he talks about his experience with MaxSea marine electronics products onboard:
I have used MaxSea navigation software since 1993 and have witnessed the software evolution that has taken place since then.
MaxSea’s strength is that it has always listened to its customers and has used this feedback to develop their valuable tools for navigation and fishing.
My boat’s marine electronics system
My boat “En Passerelle le Sauvage” (“Gateway to the Wild”) is equipped with:
- MaxSea TimeZero PLOT
- Wind Sensor
- Robertson AP35 autopilot
- 1 E/R AIS
I recently installed a dedicated PC with VMS (Vessel Monitoring System) and Iktus to transmit logbook data.
What I like about MaxSea TimeZero
MaxSea TimeZero is even more powerful than MaxSea’s older version software and its design is great for managing and categorising all the fishing data I have recorded over the last two decades.
Earlier this year I sold my boat, but I remain present in the industry. Now I use MaxSea TimeZero for on-land purposes. I use it to manage scallops and to create and define boundaries.
This works very effectively as each fisherman can leave port with the file containing these boundary areas and rules.
Then they simply connect their USB stick to their MaxSea TimeZero installation to access all the data that was decided on during a previous committe meeting – easy!
