Are you the Master of This Scenario?
Your passengers want to go and have lunch at Cabbage Key. As you approach the channel, you see it is crowded with boats. The Harbor Master is distracted. The only slip available has wind keeping you off and a cross current. Everything that happens at the docks is in plain view of the patio dining area.
Do you proceed, or bail out?
I’ll give you the training you need to handle this situation with confidence. Alone, if necessary.
I specialize in teaching close quarters maneuvering, navigation, and safety. I offer instruction to Individuals, small groups, and couples. I am a veteran of the United States Navy, retired high school teacher and I taught Safe Boating to hundreds of students at the Chapman School of Seamanship in Stuart, Florida.
My experience includes operating a 49 passenger boat on Lake Superior, a 30 passenger boat on the Peace River, and running excursions and nature cruises on Charlotte Harbor from Punta Gorda and Placida to Safety Harbor, Burnt Store to Boca Grande.
Beginner boaters and those with much experience are welcome to call to see if I can be of service. 941-301-8687.
