My personal comment and commitment to you
I have been a licensed 100 ton master/captain for over 20 years. My sailing career has included 30+ ocean crossings, over 85 thousand miles as vessel master and/or owner in both sail and power boats.
I have sailed as the Master on vessels ranging from 8' prams to 151' to square rigged ships. I have raced across the pacific ocean and cruised the south pacific. My sailing experience spans a lot of the globe from Florida to Australia.
In addition I was a boat-builder for over 20 years, and have lived on the water for more than 30 years.
