Delivery Captain - In Florida

I have a new Knysna 500SE Catamaran being delivered to Port Everglades FL towards the end of the month. ETA 1/21 to 1/25.

Looking for a captain that is familiar with the trip from Port Everglades to St. Petersburg.

I will be part of the crew along with one or two of my friends acting as crew as well.

I have operated the boat for 6 weeks in South Africa and know the systems well but I’m not familiar with operating in Florida waters and still need practice/training on tight quarter maneuvering.

I have a contract to move a boat from Panama to St Petersburg (where I live), or I would offer my services.

If she gets delayed until late Feb, let me know. That is a fun run on a cat.

Recommend a surveyor to do a post-transit inspection. I have know of some horror stories of on-deck deliveries.

Good Morning, if you haven't yet found a Captain that you're comfortable with, please check your DMs. I'd be happy to help you.
