My name is Rob Anonen and I founded Boating Suite in 2009. From the beginning my goal has been to create innovative boating apps that are intuitive and easy to use. For me, boating is more than just a hobby or a weekend pastime. It’s a passion that I enjoy sharing with my family and friends and by creating Boating Suite I am able to share this passion with boaters around the world.
The idea for Boating Suite started with my paper logbooks, Excel spreadsheets and an iPhone. I searched the App Store for boating apps and found that there were a lot of navigation apps but there were no boating logbooks. I wanted an easy way to log my boating trips and keep track of everything with my boat including fuel, maintenance, expenses, etc…and my to-do and shopping lists were never-ending! I was in search of something simple to use yet powerful – and most important, useful. Nothing existed so I designed and created Boating Suite from scratch based on my original Excel spreadsheet. Over the years we’ve added features that were never possible in a simple spreadsheet and we now have the most robust logbook app on the App Store.
My current boat is a
2008 Sea Ray 240 SD, 2008 Sea Ray 280 DA, Cobalt 200 BR, Cobalt 232. I’ve loved all my boats and swore each one was the last one. As much as I love my current boat I can see from the pattern that it won’t be last one 😉
Here are pictures of my last boat…
