Tom Isaacson and Al Kong founded Big Bay Technologies in 2000. Both Al and Tom have had over 10 years of experience offering advance custom computer solutions for the marine industry. Despite the economic downturn Big Bay Tech has continuously grown from its inception to today where we routinely ship world-wide 50 systems a month. We at Big Bay Tech look forward to our busiest summer cruising season to date.
Some of your clients that use our equipment include: SSBN USS Alabama (ballistic missile sub, Bangor), Crowley, Delta, Hatteras, Hinkley, Nordland, Swan, and Viking.
Big Bay Tech has worked tirelessly to develop new products that are high-performance, robust and affordable. We offer a complete line of computers, displays and accessories that have been thoroughly tested and proven to be up to the rigors of marine use. Our most popular computer is called the Book PC which is a small form factor computer that is easily mounted anywhere on a boat and is capable of running any application you can load. One of the biggest issues most people have with using their own computer on a boat is being able to see the display. Big Bay Tech makes sure you can easily see the display in any lighting environment. With 4 lines of displays and over 12 different models we can match one of our displays to your boat for optimal viewing even at night when too much brightness is the issue. Whether you have a single steering station or multiple, we have the accessories that will enable you to interact with the computer from virtually anywhere on the boat, all tested for the marine environment.
Some of you may be asking yourself ‘what can I do with a computer onboard my vessel’? The most popular use of a computer is to use software by Nobeltec, Maptech, or Transas (to name a few) as a Chart Plotter. You might be surprised to find out that in addition to that you can also integrate a Radar, Depth Sounder / Fish Finder, Surveillance Cameras, High Speed Wireless internet, Real Time Weather images and forecast, as well as use you computer to watch Movies, listen to Radio or watch TV. You may soon ask yourself why you don’t have such a versatile information rich solution on your vessel.
