Scheduling Club Boat Software/App Needed

Recommended Posts

I belong to a small boat club with 7 club owned boats. One of our biggest frustrations is managing the check out of these boats for casual sailing. Does anyone have suggestions for an inexpensive scheduling application that they have had success? What suggestions do you have for a minimum amount of time to allow for a sail? These are 18 foot keelboats on moorings. They take about 10-15 mins to rig, max.

Key features needed:

  • set timeframes boats can be scheduled
  • simple online reservations and canceling
  • be able to view which boats are available and which are not
  • boats with open capacity for crew show available slots per boat
  • whatever else I have n't thought about .... like what??

 

Thanks in advance!!

You might want to try your luck with wordpress and plugins,

1 option would be to use woocommerce and create a bookable product

2 Use a a booking plugin

Why don’t you guys just have a Google calendar accessible to members and mark availability and number of souls on board

We have 7 boats shared by about 40 members. We need to control it a little more than what a simple Google Calendar will permit. I need to figure out how to add a reservation system to Goog Calendar...

I was thinking the same: Google Calendar. You can set up "meeting slots" for different boats.

Sign up for Google G-Suite. Set each boat up as a one-person conference room. Done.

I think I am going to go this route as I have just confirmed the club has GSuite.  Thanks one and all.
