Raised on the water in New Zealand fishing with my younger brother and Dad I developed an early love for the ocean. I have owned & operated a wide range of vessels for over 35 years. I have been a delivery & training captain for the past 11 years during which time I have also lived aboard my 42' sport fishing vessel the entire time. Working as tow boat captain for TowBoatUS in the Florida Keys & the Treasure Coast was invaluable experience in seamanship and customer service. With experience from Connecticut to Key West, Miami to Venezuela, Stuart thru the Lake to the Gulf Coast & beyond.
