Sea talk testimonials

I now have 2 bareboat catamaran charters in the Grenadines under my belt. From my knowledge gained with NauticEd, I encountered no issues or difficulties and both charter companies were completely satisfied with my NauticEd resume. Thanks for making this happen for me and my family.
