Updating Your Boat Profile – A New Video Tutorial for BCA Members

The Board of Directors and the BCA Directory coordination team is pleased to introduce the first of a series of brief video tutorials designed to assist BCA members navigate the BCA website in order to keep their membership information accurate and up-to-date.

Check out this 6-minute video [1] which shows how BCA primary members can easily and quickly update their boat profile, then go online and try it out;  you’ll be glad you did, especially if this is something that has been a bit of a mystery and/or a frustration over the years!

Since the video was “launched” during the November 10 all-chapter club night, a number of members have either updated or loaded their boat info for the first time (thanks to all of you who have done that!).  Needless to say, this bodes well for a richer, more complete 2022 BCA Member Directory.

If you still have questions about the process after viewing the tutorial or if you need assistance signing into the website, please contact Vimmy [2].

The Board is also pleased to announce the addition of a new custom field for a boat’s MMSI number which will be included in next year’s Directory.  This addition has been repeatedly requested by the membership over the past few years and it is great to finally be able to include.

BCA Fleet Map as of November 2021

If your boat has an MMSI number and you would also like to participate in the new BCA Fleet Map which ultimately will show where BCA member boats can be found all over the world, please contact Daragh Nagle [3] (VI Fleet Co-coordinator).  Further information about the Fleet Map can be found in this Currents‘ article [4].
