"I ordered your course a couple of weeks ago. It has given me the confidence to take my kids out on the water by myself. My husband has a very rigorous work schedule and too many beautiful boating days were being missed. Even though I knew things here and there about boating, I never felt confident to get out there alone. After taking the course, I couldn’t wait to just start practicing. I started with short trips in good weather, to last week taking my girls to the sandbar, and even gassed up on the water on the way! I have made a couple minor mistakes, but continue to learn. Looking forward to your next course!

Just wanted to give you some positive feedback. I also have shared your course with a few friends and told them how it helped me."

Thanks! Margie

“I finished the course finally and I really enjoyed it. I will recommend it to others and make my son, who is 14 and wants to get his boating certificate here in New York, watch it as well. It is very practical.”


“Just completed the course! Appreciate all the info and detail in all the videos. Nice to have a one stop shop for reference on specifics. Very helpful! I found you from “The Qualified Captain” so I knew it was well worth it. But, overall the course was perfect. It confirmed a lot that I had already learned from growing up boating as a Floridian, as well as give me better insight to navigation and what not to do. This course is perfect for beginners and regular boaters alike.”


About Me

Ever since I was a kid I've grown up with a passion for boating. Over the past 35 years I've owned countless boats of all different styles and lengths, navigated almost every part of Florida and the Northern Bahamas, and spent the last 20 years as a Crewman and Coxswain in the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. I'm a licensed Captain and in my late 20's I worked and trained directly with a Coast Guard small boat station where I gained incredible experience and participated in numerous search & rescue missions. Now, I bring all my experience and knowledge to you through my courses to make you the confident boater you want to be.
