We updated the ship’s technology including;

  • Raspberry Pi running a Rails app as the Ship’s Computer
  • Outernet receiver for weather at sea
  • Find me Spot to report ships current location
  • vYacht to connect to the Ship’s instruments
  • And an EPIRB in case of emergency

We attempted to create our own Seatalk cable in order to save some money. It worked for a little while but was constantly causing instrument errors when the boat moved. Diana and I are trekkies aso it was fun working on a Star Trek themed Ship’s Computer. I’ll enjoy continuing to work on that while we’re sailing at warp 0.00000000000001.
