Hey guys, I've been very absent lately. mostly work since I have a new project kicking off, but also because I've been in a Coast Guard certified Captain's School.

We finished up Sunday evening and I passed with a 97%...not bad for a crazy man from Clear Lake Texas.

So, all I have to do now is turn in all my paperwork, pass a Drug test and FBI background check....30-45 days later viola

El Capitan.

I will have an OUPV (Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessel) Near Coastal, Commonly called a "Six Pack" since I can carry 6 paying customers on an uninspected boat. I will also have a 50 ton Master Inland since my boat is over 5 tons (as classified by the Coasties)
