Private Training - Tampa Bay

I am in need of private training.

If possible, I would like to hire an instructor directly rather than going through an ASA training school.

Is this a feasible approach and how best to locate such instructors?

Due to insurance requirements the instructor would need to be included on my policy as a named operator.

I really liked instructor Andy Deen when I did an ASA 106 course out of St. Petersburg, FL. You can find his contact information at:

Try Captain Joe. He lives in the area and is a great instructor. Fun guy with lots of experience.

I write yacht insurance...did your agent give you a Captain training/sign off form? If not I have a template if you need. Typically carriers req 50 hrs...seen one ask for only 25 hrs. Either way can be expensive, but worth it. Good luck!!!
