A California company has introduced maintenance software programs for boat owners and captains - one for PCs and one for Macs. ShipshapeMotorboat and ShipshapeSailboat from IntelligentBoatCare LLC in San Francisco manage and predict when maintenance is due, company CEO Jonathan Killip says. The company tapped marine industry professionals to create detailed maintenance schedules, he says. The programs give the user the ability to add, locate and upgrade new equipment that has been installed on board. The user can customize maintenance plans pertaining to parts and components on the boat, such as electrical, hatches, and water and waste. There also are checklists for winterizing, commissioning and annual service. And there's a list for maintenance items that are due - or overdue. The software is $59.99 and can be purchased through the company website. Contact: Intelligent Maintenance, (510) 206-9152. www.intelligentboatcare.com
