This Captain just completed his official Captain’s credential for OUPV (Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels)
If you ever have wanted to get your Captain’s license, you need to pass this course/test. I recommend
attending the “Advanced Maritime Education” school. There are classroom programs in Long Beach and Point Richmond.
If you mention my name you will get $50. off your enrollment. Smart, Affordable Captain’s Licensing…

Check out his website http://www.smartcaptains.com. The class is FUN too…Best way to learn!
Planning in full swing for “The Great Pacific Race“ support vessels.
Less than four weeks until departure from San Francisco to Monterey. Then two weeks later depart for Honolulu.
Most of the major projects to outfit the boat are underway. The boat was hauled and inspected this week at KKMI in Richmond, CA.
New bottom paint, polish job. The boat is looking great! They can do just about anything you need there and the staff is wonderful to work with.
Just go to their website at http://www.kkmi.com and they will set you up. You can even do a lot of work on your own boat in their yard…
Thanks Bob and crew at KKMI.
Installations for the desalination (fresh water maker) and diesel heating system are almost complete. We have Anders at Swedish Marine
located in Point Richmond is on this project and their work is superb. Check out their site at http://www.swedishmarine.com .
Next step, Svendsens metal shop in Alameda to construct the stainless steel unit designed by their manager Chris to support the solar panels,
After the Svendsens team finish their rig, Earl, from Mathiesens Marine Services is our electronics experts at http://www.mathiesenmarine.com.
Installed our AIS system including MOB alarm and plb’s. Hooked up our Iridium Pilot satcom, and our solar and wind generators. If you are looking for
someone who knows electronics, Ask for Earl. He is highly respected and can recommend exactly what you need based upon your situation. He has guided us well.
Eric from Pacific Crest Canvas located in Alameda can install the off shore dodger and design the bimini to mate with the dodger
and aft structure for a perfect fit allowing for a full enclosure that provides great protection and safety against the elements at sea and wont interfere with
the running rigging or access to the aft set up. go to http://www.pacificcrestcanvas.com. Ask for Eric and upgrade today.
We are so impressed with the work Pacific Crest Canvas did on our off shore dodger, bimini and enclosure. Eric and his team put in the extra time and stayed late on a Friday evening to insure we were set up and ready for our 4am departure.
All vendors and manufacturers we have chosen are the best at what they do and the most reasonable and reliable for our retrofit.
We cut our wedding cake Saturday, 5/24 and now are loading up gear to sail to Monterey a week later.
More to come within future posts. Stay tuned.
