Competent Master Available for Deliveries

Greetings!

I am currently committed through about November 1, but booking jobs beginning then. Following is a little about me.

Covid- I have had both doses of Moderna, plus a booster, and restrict my deliveries to inoculated customers and crew. The worst thing to happen is to be in the middle of nowhere and have someone with serious symptoms. This is not a political statement it is simply one of the rules on boats where I am master.

Qualifications- I am a 100 Ton USCG Master, Sailing Endorsement, ASA Instructor and am a contributing author to Practical Sailor, having had 5 articles published. As Master, I have delivered boats from Panama/Grenada to Boston to Gibraltar, as well as many, many ports in-between on vessels ranging from a PSC Flicka to a 64 Jeanneau and cats to 54’. You can also check the tracking link on my website to verify where I have taken yachts.

About your delivery- Underway, the safety of the crew and vessel are always the #1 priority. We rig jack lines before departing and most nights the watch-keeper is required to clip in. Owners are always welcome to crew their deliveries. Once we reach our destination, additional training can be arranged.

For offshore deliveries I carry an Iridium GO and download weather twice a day through Luck Grib and PredictWind Pro routing software that uses your vessels sailing and motoring polars to route your vessel as safely and efficiently as possible. More importantly, it allows us to avoid high winds and seas to avoid damage along the way.

Tracking- All deliveries can be tracked through my Garmin inReach. If you are not aboard, you always know where your vessel is!

How to learn more- Please contact me through my profile, or through the link to my website appears there. Feel free to check my website and some of my posts here to understand a little more about me and to understand how your boat will be treated.

I will have intermittent internet service 8/23 to about 9/1 during a west coast of US delivery and begining about 10/1 I will be doing Cadiz to Nanny Key. Please use the contact form on my website, there is a link to my messaging system in the auto-response.

I had the very good fortune to crew for Bill once earlier this year. I’m a novice, but anyone should be confident their boat and crew are in extremely capable hands when he is making a delivery for you. He’s top notch.
