Captain Chuck


Thanks for reviewing my profile. I'm a licensed Captain on the Great Lakes, as well as, Inland Waters and Near Coastal areas. We operate mainly in Chicago, but have sailed four of the 5 Great Lakes. The idea is to assure your experience on the water is fun, as well as, safe. My Coast Guard credentials follow below. Your welcome to give me a call @ three one two 607 9970 Before accepting your adventure, I ask you make contact with us. That we exchange information about your party and forward you a copy of my sailing contract. Portions of which cover mandatory Coast Guard requirements. We use Pay Pal as our payment vehicle.
