This page will give you guys some insight into who our family is. I have been an airline pilot for a major US airline for over 30 years. Prior to that, I worked for Bob Hope as his Chief Pilot after serving 4 years in the United States Coast Guard. I have been on and around the water since I was a small boy. I have a USCG 100 ton masters license with both a towing and radar endorsement. My wife is a lawyer admitted to both the Florida and New York bar. Her area of expertise is immigration, labor and maritime law. She also has her 100 ton masters license with towing endorsement. Our two boys (as of 2013, the date this is being written) are 7 and 8, love the boat and fortunately are both good students, strong swimmers and possess a grand spirit of adventure. Our family outline would not be complete without mentioning “Patton” our 11 year old Cocker Spaniel who will be making the trip with us.
