40′ Ocean Alexander

“We hired Captain Bob Smith to bring our 40-foot, 7-knot trawler home from Port McNeill, Vancouver Island, Canada to Seattle in July 2015. In sometimes difficult weather conditions, he made the trip in 8 days and delivered our boat in perfect condition, clean and rinsed down, safely and to our complete satisfaction. His fee was competitive, he communicated with us every day while underway, and we were impressed with his skill, knowledge and professionalism. We will definitely use Captain Bob again.”-C. White.

88′ Broward

“Bob served as Watch Captain on multiple offshore deliveries and never missed a beat. His focus is spot on and he will crew for the yacht again.” -A. Brown.

39′ Baltic Sloop

“We hired Bob to refit our sloop and he did a fantastic job. He showed up on time and seemed to get two or three things done at once.” -C. Brown.
