Safety Equipment & Communications:

I carry my own
satellitecommunications, which allows:
1) Text conversation to/from land to a group of email addresses or phone numbers
2) Offshore Weather forecasts download
3) It also sends a position update at set intervals. This keeps you, your family & friends in touch with where we are, and through text conversation.


delivery is different, and I am always available to discuss your delivery or training needs. Some people need their boat sailed across the harbor, some require delivery over thousands of miles, some people are looking to get used to a boat they have just bought, and to get to grips with the Rule of The Road, etiquette and logistical world that boaters live in!

Owners/friends are welcome to attend as crew
Rates and terms dependent on the requirement

Drop me a line and I can send you my full resume and we can start discussing what we can do
