That is right. This winter I took classes every Monday this winter for 16 weeks (4 more classes to go) I worked on achieving my captain’s license. Believe it or not, this would actually allow me to drive a boat of 100GT (gross tons). Can you imagine that?
I have to say I really took the class to be a smarter boater. (I really wish other Boston based boaters would do this – it gets crazy out there off the north east coast in the summer time.) We had an OUTSTANDING instructor. His name is Capt. Dyson. Capt. Dyson has a diving business and is one of the smartest guys I have met. The class was taught with the highest level of professionalism as well as knowledge that was practical to knowing how to proper operate a motor vessel. I have been very very impressed with this course.
So, I can’t wait to get on the water and use my new practical experience. See you all out there this summer.
Boston Boat Show ’08
Ah, you know know what that means? It means that in a VERY few short months, the boat will go back in the water and we will be having some fun in the summer sun!
Donna and I (and my Dad one day) went to the Boston boat show. It was great again! It was fun to “shop” knowing that no matter what, you were going to have your boat in the water in a few months. Donna was pretty funny. She decided to “board” the Environmental Police boat. She told them, they boarded us this summer so she felt it was only fair. Check this out…
Next we checked out this new boat we saw on the show floor. It was painted battle ship gray and was like no other boat I had ever seen. It was from a German company and they had already sold a half dozen of them. This was a pretty interesting boat.
We also spent some time on the new Cobalt 46 Yacht. Danny from East Coast Flightcraft had one of the new Yachts and it is beautiful. It was defiantly the princess of the party, the prettiest boat at the show.
Well, this winter I am going for my captain’s license. It is called a 6-PAK and I am pretty excited. I will be blogging about that until we hit the water again. Stay tuned.
