Your boat is an expression of your desire to have fun. Whether you fish, sail, or cruise around with friends, your boat should be the place where you enjoy yourself, relax, look cool, and have fun.

So, what gets in the way?

During your time on your boat, what causes you ANXIETY, FEAR, EMBARRASSMENT, FRUSTRATION, CONFLICT, IMPATIENCE?

I guarantee I will transform those negative feelings!

  • YOU WILL BE MORE CONFIDENT
  • YOU WILL BE SAFER
  • HAVE MORE FUN
  • FEEL EXCITED TO USE YOUR BOAT MORE OFTEN
  • GO PLACES YOU PREVIOUSLY AVOIDED
  • LOOK COOL

Rate your level of proficiency here:

  • I never take my boat out
  • I take my boat out 3 times a year if there’s no wind
  • It takes 3 of my buddies and a lot of yelling to get back in my dock
  • I can get in and out but I’ve hit my neighbor/dock a few times
  • I can get in and out but my neighbors are all watching… holding fenders.
  • I can do it OK but not if there’s wind more than 10 knots
  • I hardly ever yell at my wife/girlfriend/kiddo
  • I’ve got this...but there’s this restaurant dock where I’ve messed-up…

WE HAVE A SYSTEM DOWN NOW THAT ALLOWS US TO ENJOY OUR OUTING WITHOUT ANY STRESS THAT COMES FROM UNCERTAINTY

Stephen and Brenda L.
Palos Verdes, Los Angeles, Ca.

“I had a couple of training sessions with another Captain who had been in the Coast Guard who was excellent, but David took me to a whole new level. Besides his amazing set of credentials and in-depth knowledge and years of experience, David is a great coach because he conveys his knowledge in a manner so that you actually learn and retain that knowledge to be a better boater yourself. Not just the physical handling of the boat and its controls, but mentally getting you to THINK  two steps ahead and intelligently assess each situation he puts you in so know how to take proper action.

He worked with the whole crew (me and my wife and step-son) on anchoring, mooring, properly tying up at the dock. We have a system down now that allows us to enjoy your outing without any stress that comes from uncertainty. He’s also a really great likable guy!

Epic Day! Cheers Captain Morris”

MORE CONFIDENT AND RELAXED / EXCELLENT INVESTMENT

George and Gillian P.
Del Mar, Ca.

“I have crewed on racing yachts and have thousands of miles under my belt, but leaving the marina slip and returning was stressful and detracting from our enjoyment. David did an excellent job of honing my boat handling skills (under power), as well as coming up with docking techniques, which greatly enhanced our successful arrivals and departures. He brought us up to speed on COLREGS as well as anchoring and tying-up to a buoy.

David coached us in a patient, calm and coherent manner dissecting each maneuver and identifying the small changes that made a huge difference. I found David’s coaching to be hugely beneficial, and an excellent investment. My wife has become more confident and proficient and we BOTH FEEL MORE CONFIDENT AND RELAXED rather than the previous anxiety and trepidation we experienced.

We highly recommend David to coach you on your boat!"
