Skipper, Pelagic Australis
extremely happy with the performance of your Sky Eye product
that I purchased in March for the Volvo 70 yacht Movistar. It was a
great asset to have for our voyage across the Southern Ocean and up the
Atlantic. It is certainly the best satellite imagery software I have
many yachties in Chagos really appreciated the real time images.
I bought a SkyEye satellite
receiver and software from Jonathan Selby at Xaxero
in January 2004 which has given me hours of useful weather satellite
information. I noticed a problem with the receiver 3 weeks ago and
Selby who immediately asked me to check connections on the installation,
they were all checked and found to be sound. Mr Selby then agreed to
the complete unit free of charge – and within days the new unit arrived
- I am
once again able to view the weather images around the Durban coast.
products are backed by EXCELLENT service.

The weather in the Indian Ocean is very changeable, and even the radio
net gurus can't see the weather systems as well as I could with Skyeye
aboard. Coupled with my Inm-c I became the local weather alert station
for boats in the atolls and even those on passage east and west from
Chagos. I know of at least one or two who will probably get Skyeye when
they get back to a less remote place.
Skyeye allowed me to suggest anchorages that would be less exposed to incoming weather, tracks that would minimize disturbed weather, and departure timing to make passages safer and more comfortable."

useful software available anywhere."
"Your software I
must say is absolutely top notch and it makes meteorology very
easy whilst on the
boat. Thank You,"
