Captain James (Jim)


I retired after 31 years of active duty in the United States Coast Guard as a CWO4. I served for 16 years as a Boatswain's Mate and 15 years as a Bosun. I prize the quality of integrity above all others. I'm hard working, diligent, and honest. I don't use illicit drugs, will not tolerate it in employees and prefer not to work for those who do. I seldom use alcohol and never while underway. I have excellent communications skills and am a polished public speaker. I'm well versed in single and twin screw theory, jet drive operations and all modern electronics. I am a proud combat veteran.
