After leaving the USCG, I spent several years in the commercial marine industry, and continued to upgrade my Merchant Mariners license. I had the opportunity to operate passenger vessels in Massachusetts and Florida, small tugs along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts, and crew/supply boats in the Gulf of Mexico oil fields. I had the opportunity to serve as a navigation and boat handling instructor at the prestigious Chapman School of Seamanship in Stuart, FL. My last commercial marine endeavors had me serving as the Chief Mate and relief Captain aboard the 168' Research Vessel "Edwin Link" out of Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute in Fort Pierce, Florida.
Over the years, I have owned and operated an assortment of small craft. In 2018, my wife of 32 years and I returned to her home State of Rhode Island to be closer to her family. We currently own and operate an Eastern Sisu 22' Pilothouse along the coast of Rhode Island.
I am passionate about being on and about the water, and enjoy sharing my love for the sea with others. I am available anytime to help you find the perfect craft to fit your needs and budget.
