About Jerry

Equity programmers that are boaters will quickly be the most interested in my app. PASSION DRIVES PERFORMANCE. Boating is kinesthetic recreation, unlike gaming. For over a decade, I observed and interacted with boaters, as well as participated in an industry that went from boom to bust in 2007. From both a macro and micro analysis of structural problems in the marine industry, I saw problems that could be fixed, but still haven't been. Starting with the individual boater, to categories of boaters, to dealers, to OEM manufacturers, huge disconnects prevail.
My app will morph into more sophisticated editions, but will take a very large step in assisting the above participants. FUNCTIONALITY AND FUN are the framework. Programmers are builders, and if I were one, I would let my ego create something special. I would like that type of programmer to join me in showing his/her stuff to 90 million boaters worldwide.
