Recieved June 1, 2010:

I am a U.S.Coast Guard 50 Ton Licensed Master Captain. My license includes towing and sailing endorsements. I have over 17 years of boating and sailing experience which includes eight years as a member of the U.S. Coast Guard where I served as a Boatswain's Mate, a qualified Coxswain, and a Federal Boarding Officer. I am also a qualified marine surveyor and have traveled the Caribbean working in both capacities as a captain and a marine surveyor. I am a member of SAMS, ABYC, and the NFPA.


I have a squeaky clean background. I am a non - smoker and do not drink. I am easy going and have a friendly personality however I am a diligent worker. I am safety conscious and do not take any unnecessary risks. I love boating, the ocean, and enjoy the company of the people who want to be a part of it.

To Whom It May Concern:
Life is a series of changes, it is when you are able to adapt to those changes, that you can in part determine the next course change and how that change will affect your life.
I am now at a changing point in my life, I should say a self-imposed change, a major course correction, moving from a plotted DR position to a fix, I now know where I am and where I need to head.
Sailing for over 25 years and having loved each wet and wild minute, a few years back I earned my U.S.C.G license and that still is a proud day in my life. With these facts in hand my destination is from a marketing expert to a fulltime sailor, delivery skipper, a Captain.
I would like to be included on your list of Captains for hire, so I may make this change and reach my new destination. No, I don’t expect to be named a Captain immediately; I understand insurance limits and the things I need to learn. But once I am involved I am a fast and effective student who in record time will be at the head of the list.
Let me know how I can fit into your immediate and future needs. I am a few hours away from Newport, RI, Boston and the balance of New England ports. Looking south those same few hours bring me to New York City, New Jersey and add a few more hours allow me to reach Chesapeake Bay.
I hope that my next course is plotted to your office for an interview.

Sailing Experience:

An accomplished sailor, I hold a U.S. Coast Guard Masters license (50 gross ton) with a towing and sailing

endorsement. I have been sailing for over 25 years and have raced and cruised along the entire east coast of

the United States, the Bahamas, the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. I have owned a series of

sailboats including a Tartan 33R and a Tartan 40, I currently own a J-32. In early 2010 I will begin the first of a

three-part course to be awarded Yachtsman Offshore certification. Over the past few years I have made a

series of long haul trips including sailing from Fort Lauderdale to Annapolis, Mallorca, Islas Baleares to Rome,

Italy, a six day trip to the Bahamas, an 8-day from Grado, Italy to Palermo, Sicily and series of long weekend

trips on my boat to various destinations in New England.
