Deckhand App

Real Time Data was formed in Australia in 2010 by Tom Robinson and Simon Dick. After leaving the world of advertising in 2002, Tom built Goolwa PipiCo, now the largest clam fishery in Australia. Deckhand was inspired by Tom’s experience and designed for simplicity and ease of use with Simon at his side.

Deckhand has been in use by commercial fishermen in Australia for over 4 years and recently launched in New Zealand as one of the primary industry-endorsed products for their commercial fishing market.

Rollout of Deckhand in the USA has already begun with trials and early discussions with fisheries and regulators. If you’re interested, contact us.Designed by fishermen, for fishermen. Deckhand is an electronic logbook that can submit your statutory catch and effort data automatically.

Deckhand is an iPad-based electronic logbook that can submit your statutory catch and effort data automatically.

No more paperwork, simply enter your catch as you go and once you’ve finished your fishing activities, hit submit and the chosen regulatory data is instantly sent through to the relevant agencies. Deckhand will take care of the rest.

Deckhand has been closely developed with the input of fishermen from a number of different sectors around Australia & New Zealand. Most people are using the devices confidently in less than ten minutes. The intuitive nature of the user interface makes entering complex data lightning fast.

The ease of data entry makes it simple for the user to enter multiple variables in a fraction of the time it would take to record manually. Most fishermen find they can collect significantly more fine-scale data with far less effort than the paper-based systems they have had to use previously.

The Deckhand e-Logbooks come with waterproof and shockproof protective cases and an optional mounting system.

With custom add-ons, you can capture more information about your fishing trips for you to use to improve your business.
