I need an ASA
104 certificate to bareboat
for 1 week in Croatia
I took and taught sailing with the U.S. Navy
Sailing Association in the 1970's. Since then I have owned and raced boats from 14 to 38 feet, both onshore and offshore
. I currently own a Bavaria
38 Ocean Center Cockpit
I have taught navigation
, and I have taught many of my own crew to sail; some of them now own and race
their own boats. I do my own maintenance
and have rebuilt the diesel engine
from my previous boat in my own garage.
Now I need ASA
. I have never gotten any ASA certification
so I need an instructor to administer the tests and to demonstrate that I exceed the requirements for #104.
I want to keep the costs and time down and I don't need a sailing school
. We can use my boat and if we need to do an overnight demonstration I can assure you that you will eat well and sleep in comfort. (My wife and I are great cooks and love to show off!)
I will need proof that you are able to provide me with a legitimate certification and perhaps a referral or two.
