BoatUS Seeks Captains!
A new online Professional Captains Locator Service
from BoatUS is being launched to connect USCG licensed captains with boat owners seeking professional services. First, the Locator Service
will help boat owners find captains for on-the-water deliveries.
The Service will also connect professional captains with inexperienced boat owners who would like to become more familiar with their new boats. A third reason concerns using professional captains to move boats prior to the arrival of a hurricane
. Many boat insurance
policies today offer to help with the cost of professional delivery
services when a named storm is approaching.
The program’s current
goal is to have qualified captains listed on the database before
it becomes available to the public later this year. When the Web site does go live, Captains will be able to gain new job leads by leveraging the BoatUS.com Web site.
Professional Captains can get an application at BoatUS.com/Procaptains
