I grew up on a cabin cruiser. Every weekend my Grandfather taught me to pilot from the bridge, and dock the boat (a 28 foot Chris Craft) before i was 8 years old, when he sold the boat. He also taught me the fundamentals of sailing on the lake in the front yard of the house that I now live. I guess it was ingrained enough that when I took a trip to Florida, never having been on a life-size sailboat,after piloting the boat for the entire trip, the captain asked me how long I had been sailing when i returned the boat safely to the dock. I had to answer... that was my first time! He was shocked! Thank you Grandad! I love boats.. being on the water is one of my favorite places to be. This business gives me the opportunity to be around one of the things i love the most.
