Crew Mates Authentication ™
You now have the optional ability to digitally authenticate your logbook via your crew mates. The value in this is enormous and exciting. In old paper days people had the captain of their ship sign their paper logbook for sea time. In commercial situations this still exists. Pilots do it also. But until now it has not been practical for a recreational sailor to keep a logbook and have it authenticated with a signature and then save it and mail it when requested. Charter Companies have always needed to rely upon the honesty of the client when they fill out their resume. And until now there was no other solution to be confident of a stated sailing resume.
In the digital age, with a little bit of code (actually a lot) an authenticated logbook becomes as easy as a click of the mouse.
HOW IT WORKS
Here is how the new NauticEd Authenticated Logbook works. First, you set up your Crew Mates using our Crew Mate tool. These can be either other NauticEd students or not. When you make an entry into your logbook online you simply (and optionally) select who you were out on the boat with. This then generates an auto email to your Crew Mates and asks them inside the email to do one click for authentication. If the Crew Mate is already a NauticEd student, then their logbook is also updated and authenticated. The authentication is optional of course – but with it being this easy for the student to build a fully authenticated logbook it becomes incredibly valuable – and sort after.
This is a revolutionary resume verification system for yacht charter companies now. For years people have asked how true really is the student’s logbook. The authenticity now is beyond question. You’ll have a fully authenticated logbook digitally signed by dozens of different people. Your experience is unrefutable.
NOTE: Your crew mates will not be spammed. Only one email is sent asking them if they want to help you out. If they say no – that is the end of it. If they say yes, they are only sent an email if you ask to authenticate and even then only one email max is sent per week. In that email, they can AUTHENTICATE ALL if there is more than one entry to authenticate.
If there are no authentication requests they don’t get any emails. At any time they can opt out. We don’t use this as marketing to them – although honestly, we do in the first email let them know that they can have a free logbook if they choose. We don’t market our courses to them. We respect your crew mates.
