Default Have a boat?

Do you have a boat? If so, have you taken the USCG Aux. Saftey Course?
Do you have your Cap'ts. licence?

I have a bass boat. I have not taken any course or earned a captain's license. Although I do demand that all passengers refer to me as Captain.

I do.

I have.

I used to have a six-pack license and do whale watching trips in the San Juan's.


(And I'm very wary of Bayliner Bob's!)

I own a 19' aluminum fishing boat and a 23' sailboat. I hold a 3,000T Master's (Oceans) license. I've never taken the Aux course but it couldn't hurt. My Compac 23:

Damn, I'm a piker compared to you, Strat. All's I ever did was 100t near shore.
I just ran up and down the East coast on floating condo' s.

Is that why you were in Africa?

And do you keep knee pads on board? Those non slip decks can rough, I've heard.

Yes I have a boat and a waverunner. Benn driving boats since I was 14, so that makes 18 years now. No I have not taken that class, but I do have a captain's hat! So yes I am a captain! I don't need a license to prove it!
