This is to announce the availability of Bearboat Pro as a beta software release. Bearboat Pro is software for designing a kayak or a canoe. Bearboat Pro is a successor to an earlier program simply called Bearboat (Bearboat Classic). This is a total rewrite of that program but retains much of the same “look and feel”. Bearboat Pro is largely compatible with Bearboat Classic. Designs that were created in Bearboat Classic can be opened in Bearboat Pro and it is even possible, as an option, to save designs created in Bearboat Pro as files that can be opened by Bearboat Classic.
This program is shareware. It may be freely distributed. There is no charge for this program.
There are four versions of the Bearboat software
1. Bearboat Classic
2. Bearboat Pro for the PC
3. Bearboat Pro for Mac OS 9
4. Bearboat Pro for Mac OS X
These are available at the Web site
