A sailor since the age of 18, I started sailing on Lake Travis during college where I was one of the founding members of the University of Texas Sailing Club. I’ve sailed inland lakes and blue water from Texas to the South China Sea to the Pacific, the Caribbean and Mediterranean. I am a United States Coast Guard credentialed Merchant Marine Master Charter Captain qualified for 100 gross ton vessels including power, sail and tow. I bring over forty-five years of boating experience to your cruise with safety always first on my mind. This is the 26th boat I have owned and I am blessed to be doing what I love. I even live aboard another cruiser on Lake Travis. I am definitely a boat guy….. so, come out and join me for a truly unique experience!
