Dear Captain Bob
Thanks for a wonderful experience! You have set a high level when it comes to teaching. Keeping it simple is your slogan and that you did. As a result of spending time with you and experiencing living on a trawler for 4 days we have we came to the conclusion it would be much better if we chartered than buying a trawler due to our age and late retirement. We now have a graduation certificate from trawler school that includes all the classes we’ve done. Navigation, charts, chart plotter, engine class, electrical, anchoring and docking a 40’ single engine with one hand. We now have the certificate to send to the charter company of our 4 days of accomplishments!
I honestly was not looking forward to attending trawler school until I started it. I learned a lot about boating on my own and cruised around a lot, but Captain Bob showed me that I could learn a lot more. He is a great teacher. The Wednesday night musical game we played was very special it was the highlight of our trip it was lots of fun.
Just like you told us, women docking turns out to be 85% better than men— Shirley turned out to be 90% better!
Great food and Happy times
Bob & Shirley
