USCG licensed captain, I will deliver your vessel,
pleasure or commercial, to any port requested in a safe and timely manner.
My training and experience on numerous vessels from 190 ton OSV class work
and crew boats to midsize pleasure cruisers give me the confidence to
transport your boat or yacht for delivery anywhere along the U.S. coastal
waters as well as the Bahamas, Canada, and Mexico.
Boat and Yacht Deliveries
My crew and I will move your vessel safely and efficiently
between any ports of call in the U.S, Bahamas, Canada, and Mexico or move
it from slip to slip in your marina. No job is to small or transport to
far. Your boat will not be moved until a complete pre-transport survey is
completed by a member of the Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors-SA to
insure the safety of the crew and the seaworthiness of the vessel making the
voyage. Inspections are performed to USCG regulations, ABYC standards, and
generally accepted seamanship practices. While the delivery is in process you
should sleep well at night, between daily status reports, knowing your yacht or
boat is in capable hands and being cared for by professional able-bodied seaman.
If you are planning a
voyage and want additional experienced crew members or chartering for hire and
require a licensed captain to be aboard I can help. If the thought of Captain
Ron discourages you from a captained charter you can rest assured that I will do
all in my control in order that you and your family have a safe, memorable
boating experience. I also have experience in performing pre-purchase, and
post retrofit sea trials both at the controls and as crew. As a qualified
Marine Surveyor, I can help you insure that your planned voyage will be
undertaken on a safe, seaworthy craft or that your repairs are being performed
in a cost effective and prudent manner.
If you are in need of
training, be it boat
handling skills, navigation equipment usage, general seamanship, or assistance
passing a Coast Guard exam, I can be of assistance. Powerboat Squadron and
Coast Guard Auxiliary courses are excellent, but if you want a more in-depth and
personalized training we can work out a program to suit your specific needs.
A combination of theory and practical application will help you out in tough
situations and give others confidence in your decision making abilities.
