Re: Christian Maritime Academy?

Aloha and welcome aboard,
Good to have you posting here and feeling out the community on the forum.
Good luck in your undertaking. Yes, its been done before with some measure of success and that means that you could do it to successfully.
Yes on finding a different name which would not be confused with the Maritime Academy.
kind regards,

becoming part of an existing organisation will offer a greater variety of options for a start up than going it alone,especially in the marine sector where there is a lot of red tape and liability issues.

Re: Christian Maritime Academy?

To answer Dr Chap's questions I would think the business model of existing organizations would be helpful. Perhaps partnering with existing orgs would be fruitful.

The US may of course be different - but over here they are seperate organisations. The Sea Cadets more of a military based organisation.

FWIW, me was a Sea Scout - sort of (I went AWOL after 1 day ).

Another difference here, AWOL is a ground pounder's term. For Seaman it's UA (Unauthorized Absence).
