We had received quite some comments whether TheBoatAPP service is indeed provided for free and what the catch might be. Let us settle this.
The account creation needs simply your name, a password and a valid email address. No payment-card is required and your account is fully functional for as long as you wish to keep it. It is not a trial account with some short-term validity. It does not expire, even if you never subscribe to Gold. It is a fully functional account with no expiration date.
The service is free and only if the user wishes to support the platform and get also some extra functionality is welcome to subscribe.
