Re: first gig as a USCG captain

I would not trust the boat owner's insurance to cover a non owner skipper. Personal liability insurance is important.

Re: first gig as a USCG captain

Forgot to mention to the new delivery captain: No limited liability company (LLC) or Nevada corporation will protect you from personal liability if you personally provide the service, which is what a delivery captain does. You are a personal service entity and only insurance will help you if you personally cause, or are partially responsible for a loss or accident. LLC's and corporations only provide liability protection for a business owner if the business produces a product that, by itself, can create a liability, like the manufacture of say children's' toys. Or if you have employees who can cause a loss or injury to others. If a business owner only owns stock in a company the corporate form will protect against personal liability of the stock owner. But if the business owner also is and officer or director of a corporation there still is exposure. That's were insurance comes in again.

Re: first gig as a USCG captain

Congratulations!

I kind of ignored your thread in that I thought maybe you got promoted to Captain while in the USCG military service. Now that I see you are more or less one of us it's different so "well done" and sail safe!.

Re: first gig as a USCG captain

Great stuff, keep us updated. She looks like a yacht that could use a full time liveaboard skipper to take care of her.

Re: first gig as a USCG captain

We are all good to go ..... Just talked with the owner and him the crew have been down there this weekend getting down what asked.

Tomorrow I go back out on Vancouver lake and run two races to finish up the weekend of the VLSC annual regatta as the PRO.

The 6 pm fly out of portland and make my way down to Dana Point, CA. We will probably depart about midnight I imagine, and will take a nap after I get us our of the harbor.

If you would like to watch our progress up to Astoria here is the link:

Just got done with two days of power boat lessons up in the Seattle area. Pretty stressful teaching new boat owners that big ass boats.
