From the time I was a little boy, I have been piloting both sail and power boats around the difficult waters surrounding Nantucket Island, MA. As I got older, my journeys became longer and more challenging. Now, as a seasoned captain, I am capable and qualified to be entrusted with your sail or power vessel for delivery anywhere from The Gulf of Maine, south to the Caribbean and west to The Gulf of Mexico.
I started out in smaller boats, learning the basics of operating small craft in all sorts of conditions. In my teens I went overseas to Europe and skippered my father’s 50 foot powerboat across the English Channel and throughout the waterways of France and Belgium. I built on that foundation by returning home and using my own vessels for commercial fishing, chartering and commercial diving, having received my Open Water Diving Certificate in 1975.
In 1984, I received my 100 Ton Masters License and have held many maritime jobs including launch operator, navigation and piloting instructor, delivery captain, charter boat captain and crew/captain of countless private yachts. I have, also, been hired to help people with the daunting task of purchasing the right boat for them because of my background with such a variety of vessels.
