I believe that someone injected me with saltwater when I was a baby! It has been my life’s passion to live and work on the water. For four years my dream has been a reality. I live full time aboard Memory Maker, a 52′ trawler. I am available for deliveries of yachts up to 100′ anywhere on the East coast of the United States, Nova Scotia, or the Bahamas. I would also consider a full-time position as Captain on a private yacht.

I grew up on the coast of Maine and have been operating boats since the age of 10. My first boat was a 12′ punt with a 5hp Scott-at-water from Sears Roebuck. Over the years I have owned over 20 boats ranging in size from 16 to 26′. I bought my first cruiser in 1975, a 32′ Pace Maker, single screw with a 350 Chevy engine. In 1990 I purchased a 36′ Cruisers with twin 454’s. I presently own a 52′ Charles Witholz Custom Trawler. She’s powered by a single 671 Detroit. I have lived on her full-time for 4 years. During this time I have delivered several yachts for clients. I have made 7 trips along the entire US East coast from Maine to Florida(6 to the Gulf Coast), 4 of which I made single handed. I have been across the gulf of Maine to Nova Scotia twice. I have run off shore at night numerous times from Cape May to Newport, Block Island to Portland, Maine and several runs the entire length of Long Island Sound.
