It's simple as snapping a picture with your smartphone, and we do the rest. Synced cloud and mobile apps make verification a cinch.

SKEG is founded on established maritime principles, shaped by decades of naval experience and guided by military leadership with an affinity for admiralty law.
Competitors continue to create demand in a vacuum, servicing only the tip of the iceberg. Our respect and consideration for the industry set our sights well beyond the obvious, long before we set sail.

Beta Access to Pre-registrants
Everyone that registers with us, before August 31, 2018, will get access to the platform before it goes live to the rest of the world. Beta will last for roughly 60 days.
We have an Enterprise Membership for your outstanding business! With an Enterprise Membership you will have 20 included mariner profiles and 20 included vessel profiles. Additional mariner profiles and vessel profiles can be added at reduced prices.
Only to the extent that you allow, that is what makes SKEG great! You get to choose what you want the public to see about your business, vessel, or maritime resume. During our unique verification process, your information will be used to verify your identity and maritime credentials. Beyond the verification process, you are free to use our marketing tools in whichever way you feel most comfortable.
Unfortunately, without USCG documentation, there is not a way for our team to validate your maritime background. Thus, your profile will not feature any verification accolades. Please do no fret, we understand that over the years, documentation may become lost, damaged, or stolen. You are more than welcome to share your licenses with the public as we work with you to validate them.
Again, you are in control of your profile. You are by no means obligated to accept all connections offered to you. Our staff will likely catch spam profiles long before you notice; however, there is always the chance that you receive a connection request from a mariner profile whom you have not personally met. You are free to either accept, block, or report the profile offering to connect with you.
We will let you know if your profile has unverified information that has not been updated for quite a while. However, once your licenses are verified you are by no means obligated to update daily for example. Another great service offered to you by SKEG is our patented Seatime Tracking software that automatically tracks your seatime and uploads it to your membership profile. If you choose to share your Seatime, simply click “Allow Access” and your personal settings will determine who sees your Seatime.
Of course, we will not hold you to a monthly contract if we did not meet your standards and expectations. We only ask that you please tell us how to improve our products and services on the cancellation form.
Unfortunately, we do not allow for advertising space with our Individual Memberships or Small Fleet Memberships; however, we do offer incorporated advertising space for our Enterprise Membership. Simply contact us to discuss the details.
Yes, reputation is everything in the maritime industry. We at SKEG strive for excellence in our ability to provide reputable marketing to our industry partners. We do so by ensuring that every one of our mariners are who they claim to be; likewise, we ensure each vessel profile is verified.
